Jupiter, Venus line up, look like double star

(WIAT) — If you didn’t have to deal with the cover of a cloudy sky Tuesday night, you got to see quite a show by two planets. Jupiter and Venus lined up after a month-long back and forth between the two.

Astronomers said the planets will look like a double star since they appear to be just a fraction of a degree apart from each other. However, in reality, millions of miles of empty space are actually between Jupiter and Venus.

If you missed it this time around, the planets will get close again in August and October.
