Jupiter and Saturn may appear almost like an elongated ball of light ‘Great Conjunction’ of Jupiter and Saturn today, Professor of Physics Chandana Jayaratne said.  

“The celestial phenomenon will take place tonight when the two biggest planets of the solar system, Jupiter and Saturn comes closer to each other probably appearing them as a big elongated single planet. You can look at the western skies these days after the Sunset and you will see the two planets are gradually coming closer to each other and the closest approach will occur today when the two planets will be separated by just about one-tenth of a degree or 6.1 arc minutes.
