Now this is something to happily look forward to.
On May 16, the moon will be crescent, and the two planets of our Solar System, Jupiter and Venus, will align above the crescent moon, and these celestial bodies will form a smiley face in the sky.
This rare spectacle is called conjunction and is not to be missed, as the last time this happened was 12 years ago in 2008, so not a regular occurrence. In 2007 this also happened in the Philippines when the sky lit up at night.
