LET’S face it, there aren’t too many up sides to getting up before dawn, but it was made just a little bit more majestic this morning as a celestial dance took place in the skies above Co Clare.

Venus and Jupiter converged in the pre-dawn sky only one third of a degree apart this morning.

For those of us who do not have a degree in astrophysics, it basically means that they were side by side.

This rare occurrence will be visible again tomorrow morning, so head to a dark spot in the Co Clare countryside before dawn to catch a glimpse.

Spaceweather.com advises to look low and to the east, about half an hour before the sun rises.

The conjunction will be breaking up a little, but it will still be a beautiful sight.

It definitely makes the early morning hustle slightly more worth it.
