New Delhi: A celestial treat is in store for star-gazers on Wednesday as the moon and Venus converge in for a beautiful conjunction.

Venus and the crescent Moon will geometrically align in a way that would make them appear close to each other despite the distance between them.

Though the event will be visible to the people immediately after the sunset, the moon and Venus will achieve the celestial feat at 11.48 pm. Venus would appear on the right side of the crescent moon.

To witness the phenomenon look in the western direction after sunset. Incidentally, Saturn can also be spotted in the sky towards the eastern direction as a non-twinkling object.

In case one misses the event on Wednesday the same pair can be spotted on July 11.
