See Venus and Saturn snuggle in the sky Sunday (Jan. 22)

An illustration of the evening sky on Jan. 22 showing the conjunction of Venus and Saturn.


2023 is only three weeks old, but already we’re about to witness the closest observable pairing of naked-eye planets this year. 

Venus and Saturn will be in conjunction on Sunday (Jan. 22), appearing close enough together in the sky to both be seen through a telescope. The close pairing will also be visible to the naked-eye.
