The planets Venus and Mars are moving closer to each other as seen in the western sky just after sunset. Their closest approach is on 13th July. The moon also gets close to them on 12th July. These are all naked-eye events and we invite everyone to see it for themselves.
We have made a poster for this event, aimed at the general public, in partnership with ASI-POEC. This has also been translated into English, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Urdu and Gujarati and Malayalam!
Translations are done by (Dr Shylaja of JNP for Kannada, T.V.
