The moon and Venus are expected to make a close approach on Wednesday.
Weather permitting, the appulse will be visible from New York between 7:52 a.m. EST and 7:59 p.m. EST, according to In-the-Sky.org.
An appulse – an angular coincidence – is similar to a conjunction.
An appulse refers generally to when two celestial objects appear close together, according to NASA.

Conjunctions have no profound astronomical significance, but they are nice to view.
