The two planets rapidly pull away from each other after November 5th — Jupiter appears higher, Venus lower, each day. But they are still close enough together to form dramatic arrangements with the Moon on November 9th and 10th.
Also interesting is Venus’s passage by stars in Virgo during the month. Venus glides ½° from Eta (h) Virginis on November 2nd and 1° from Gamma (g) Virginis, or Porrima, on November 6th. This latter morning Gamma Virginis is 2° from Jupiter, which itself is still only 1½° from Venus. On November 17th Venus is closest to Virgo’s 1st-magnitude star Spica, but the separation is considerable, 3.9°.
