 What is the Rarest Venus and Jupiter Conjunction in Sky on March 1st, 2023?

Up above so high, the triplet conjunction in the sky! Yes, I mean Venus, Jupiter, and Moon conjunction. Which really and constantly intrigues everyone's attention, especially the Astrology freaks and the science fanatics. This time, on February 21, a cosmic dance between Jupiter and Venus, the two brightest planets, will start. On March 1, they will be near one another. When the rare green comet bid adieu, only to return after another 50,000 years, a remarkable cosmic phenomenon will occur this March.
It's time for some interesting cosmic facts to explain this dance.

What is this Cosmic conjunction? 
In Astrology, these two brightest planets— Venus known as (the planet of love) and Jupiter (the planet of good fortune) were roughly 29 degrees apart at the beginning of this month. They are approaching each other slowly as they dance and by March 1, 2023, they will be in conjunction. Whereas on February 20, the separation was only a little more than 9 degrees, and the distance of degrees between them further reduces to 2.3 by February 27. And finally, on March 1, they will be only 0.5 degrees apart creating a beautiful and brighter cosmic connection.      

In short, Venus will sparkle at -4 magnitude as they get closer, while Jupiter will shine at -2.1 magnitude, which is twice as bright as Sirius, the brightest star in the sky.

Entry of Moon in the Cosmic dance explained Space.com 
The moon will also join the party in addition to these planets. The report from Space.com mentioned, "As if having the two brightest planets calling our attention to them in this month's evening sky wasn't enough, the moon will add its own special luster to this array during the evenings of Feb. 21 and 22."

The Moon’s participation
Look down towards the west-southwest horizon on Tuesday evening (Feb. 21) about an hour after sunset to spot a thin crescent moon that is barely 4% lit and hovering around 7 degrees below Venus. Venus and Jupiter will appear along a long, crooked line, about evenly spaced apart from one another, around 8 degrees above and to Venus' left.

It's fascinating to observe that, from our perspective on Earth, you'll be able to view a constellation of three celestial bodies that are separated by vastly different distances. It will be roughly 227,000 miles (365,000 km) from the moon. Venus is approximately 131 million miles (210 million km) from Earth, while Jupiter is 530 million miles (more than four times) farther away (853 million km).

Where and How to Watch?
Scientists will be able to pinpoint more precisely where the two planets will dazzle the sky with their dance as the day draws closer. On March 1, though, they will only be visible via one pair of binoculars. It is always advisable to move to the city's outskirts where the sky is a little cleaner due to increasing light pollution. Well, Binoculars and/or a telescope will be helpful for enlarging this brilliant celestial event.

Don't miss watching it! 
Venus and Jupiter were closest to one another in 1975, as you can see from our table, but they are now gradually moving apart as each new 24-year cycle passes. If it's clear that night, make sure not to miss the March 1st conjunction which will be like a (planetary) triplet Cosmic Dance! Because it will still be remarkably close.
