Set your alarms for tomorrow morning across Greater Manchester if you want to witness a cosmic encounter tomorrow morning.

At 6.53am if the dawn sky is clear, you will be able to witness a close conjunction of Venus and Jupiter.

Coming about 40 minutes before sunrise in the UK, the two planets will appear very close in the sky,seperated roughly by half the width of the full Moon.

Timing is everything as the pair rise just eighty minutes before the Sun but if you leave it too late then the sky will be too bright to see them.

If you have a telescope you may also just get the opportunity to catch sight of Jupiter’s four Galilean moons Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto.
