(WBRE/WYOU) — What are those two bright lights sitting next to each other in the sky? Is it a UFO?

If you looked up in the sky Wednesday night and you saw two bright lights, don’t be worried, that’s just Jupiter and Venus!

According to NASA, Jupiter and Venus were about half a degree apart from one another on March 1.

The two planets have been getting closer and closer to one another over the past few weeks, so this might not be your first night seeing them.
