Venus and Jupiter share “kiss” in night sky

If you saw some extra bright lights in the sky Thursday night, you may have been looking at Venus and Jupiter.

In what’s called a conjunction, Venus and Jupiter passed very close together and appeared to be on top of each other.

Experts say this occurs every 13 to 14 months as the planets orbit the sun.

Residents in southwest Wisconsin were particularly concerned by the mysterious lights as 911 dispatchers received an influx of calls.
