We could appreciate the rendez-vous of Venus and Jupiter in eastern dawn sky in Nov 2004. An upper picture shows you the change of two planets during 24 hours. They has closed to about 0.6 degrees in interval on Nov 5. A bright one in upper is Venus, and lower one is Jupiter in left image. They have brightnesses of -4.0 and -1.7th magnitude respectively, I could find them out easily in urban area near Tokyo central.
And lower one has captured these two planets at far place from Tokyo on Nov 7.
