Venus-Saturn Conjunction.
The close conjunction of Venus and Saturn on 22 January 2023 was visible with difficulty above cumulus clouds to the WSW of Mutare from when the pair first appeared 20 minutes past sunset at 6.52 until they were more clearly observed setting behind cloud as darkness approached. This image shows the two planets with 49-Capricornus to the left near a cumulus cloud at 7.14 pm.
