UAE Residents Will Only Be Able To Spot Jupiter & Venus In The Night Sky Until The 3rd Week Of March
If you were wondering what those bright objects are that you see right after sunset, don’t worry, it’s not aliens. It’s just good old Jupiter and Venus.
These two planets are the stars of the show, illuminating bright and appearing within eyeshot to UAE residents until the third week of March, starting at 7pm. They shine brighter than any other planet besides the sun and moon because they have clouds that reflect more light.
And get this; they’re so close to Earth that you don’t need a fancy telescope to see them. Venus is even brighter than Jupiter because it’s closer.
Attention skygazers: Witness Venus and Jupiter hanging out like two peas in a pod! At twilight today (March 1), catch the pair above the western horizon during sunset and just a little bit after. Details on this and other events: https://t.co/Dz0MN3F6D0 pic.twitter.com/qXAagzI6aU
