What are those bright lights in the evening sky? They are the two brightest planets visible from our planet, Venus and Jupiter in their closest conjunction since 1999. Only 1/3 degrees of sky were separating them on 2015 July 1, when the two were shining over the city of Bursa, Turkey, after sunset. Tunc Tezel
