Viewers in NY will see the Jupiter rise first at 5.26am, with Venus coming at 5.31am, according to Space.com.

The Venus-Jupiter conjuction for 2017 - when two of the brighest planets in the night's sky come together -is taking place on Monday morning.

The astronomical event also occurred in 2016 and 2015.

As seen previous year, the two planets will appear like a giant, bright ball of glob.

The planets should be visible for more than an hour depending on viewing conditions, though light from the sun is expected to block out Jupiter about 15 minutes before sunrise.

Observers will have to have an uninterrupted view to the south-east as the planets will be very low in the sky.

However, while it might look like worlds are about to collide, Venus and Jupiter will in reality be hundreds of millions of miles apart.

The press service of Roskosmos said that on the morning of 13 November, the Russians will be able to observe the convergence of Venus and Jupiter.

In the UK, Venus will rise at 5:56 a.m. local time, followed by Jupiter at 6:05 a.m.

To see the bright planets you'll need to wake up early, at least an hour before dawn, Monday morning. In cloudless weather you can see how the two planets will pass each other at a distance of 0.3 degrees. Seeing the sun through a telescope or binoculars can cause serious eye damage without proper sun filters.

For context, this is approximately half the diameter of the moon.
