Come March 1, the sky gazers will get a unique treat as the brightest planets- Jupiter and Venus are coming extremely closer to each other.

Termed as the perfect 'trifecta', it has already created a buzz and people across different parts are looking forward to the celestial event.

Deputy Director of Pathani Samanta Planetarium in Bhubaneswar, Subendu Patnaik said, “Both Jupiter and Venus will come extremely close to each other and they will be separated by merely 0.52 degrees.”

According to Patnaik, such celestial event happens every two to three years. “We urge everybody to witness the rare spectacle as it can been seen with naked eyes across Odisha. Once can witness the conjunction after sunset between 6:15 pm and 7: 30 pm on March 1, 2023,” Patnaik added.

"There’s a meetup happening in the western sky: the crescent Moon sits close to Jupiter, with Venus below them. Jupiter and Venus will continue to cozy up until March 1, when they’ll be at their closest,” tweeted NASA.
