Tonight's Conjunctions

In astronomy a conjunction is defined as a close apparent alignment in the sky between two or more celestial bodies. Here we list, the closest conjunctions happening between objects we are currently tracking, in order of increasing separation.

The green arrow indicates that the objects are currently getting closer, while the red arrow means that the objects are increasing their apparent separation.
