Earth will witness, next Monday and Tuesday, January 8 and 9, Moon conjunction Venus and Antares, where the Moon is in conjunction with the planet Venus (the brightest planet in the Solar System) and the star Antares (Antares) will rise at 5:00 AM.

This scene is visible to the unaided eye, and is visible until it fades in the intensity of morning twilight due to the sunrise. Antares is a red giant star 10 times the mass of the Sun and 600 light-years across. Leave us.

Professor of Astronomy at the National Institute for Astronomical Research and member of the National Committee on Astronomy and Space Sciences, Dr. Ashraf Tadroz confirmed that the timing of astronomical events here coincides with the skies of Cairo, so time differences must be taken into account. On account of our followers in the Arab world.

Tadros continued: Generally the best places to see astronomical events are far from light pollution, such as beaches, fields, deserts, grasslands and mountains.

He said that if the weather is clear and the sky is clear of clouds, dust and water vapor, watching astronomical phenomena is fun and enthusiasts like to follow and photograph them. Or his daily activity on Earth, the daytime events associated with the Sun can be hazardous to the human eye, as viewing the Sun with the naked eye is usually very harmful to the eye.
