I will be looking forward to looing at this. I just hope I can see it well enough from where I am. Hopefully there will be some goods pics coming.
It will be cool to show my boy both planets at one time.


Astronomers say that this July planetary orbits have lined up so that people on Earth can see a rare convergence of Venus and Saturn in the night sky. Just after sunset they will appear in the west, looking like a double star, with Venus appearing much brighter. The two planets are actually hundreds of millions of miles apart, but during July they will appear to be very close from our vantage point on Earth.



"We don't often see things that bright in the sky, that close together. And the funny thing is that in this day and age, we aren't used to looking at the night sky and these things strike us as odd." Through a telescope, Venus will look like tiny a crescent moon and Saturn -- 850-million miles farther away -- will be surrounded by its famous rings.

I never thought of that! Maybe this whole story is just a cover ‘coz they know Nibiru will poke it head out from behind the sun on that day.


I really doubt it will put a stop to it but if you see them start before I do feel free to direct them to the link.

Hi VIKINGANT and thanks for posting this. Could you post a link to your source? I'm having trouble finding any additional info on this. This link states that the two will be sparated by only .2 degrees, however, they show this as occuring on August 13, so I'm just curious and wanted to make sure that I wasn't missing something.

Thanks for the find.

Wasn't that article published in July 2007 ? I don't think that it applies for 2008.

I am having a great run lately….
Looks like I grabbed the wrong one. I will have to dig around again and find the story again. There was a story applicable for this year.
