Saturn (center-left) and Jupiter (center-right) share a night sky earlier this year near Vantage, Wash. Already this past summer, the two planets were growing closer in the night sky. Later this month, they will appear closer to each other than they have for centuries.

The planets Saturn, center-left, and Jupiter, center-right, are shown between a wind turbine and Milky Way just after midnight, Monday, July 27, 2020, near Vantage, Wash. Star-gazers who are out searching for the Comet Neowise before it fades from view can direct their gaze to the skies opposite the comet for good views of the two planets. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren)
