Jupiter, Mars and Mercury in Conjunction
Want to witness a conjunction of some planets for yourself? Try Sunday, December 10, 2006 at 6:30am (EST) on the southeast horizon. Jupiter, Mercury and Mars will appear to group together within one degree of each other. If you use a telescope don't look at the sun though when it comes up. YOu may want your eyesight at some point in the future. If you miss it it will happen again in 2053, assuming 2053 comes around.
