Catch closest view of Jupiter, Venus pairing this year

At only a quarter of a degree apart, it's the closest two planets will appear in our sky this year, according to Look low in the eastern sky about 5 a.m., an hour before dawn, and see them into the morning twilight. Though they look close, they are hundreds of millions of miles apart.
