Conjunction of Mercury and Venus, appearing above the Moon, at the Paranal Observatory.

This is a list of recent astronomical conjunctions: conjunctions occur when two celestial bodies have the same right ascension or the same ecliptic longitude as seen from the Earth. Two planets appear near one another in the sky around the time of a conjunction.

The list below presents instances when two planets reach the same right ascension during the period 2005-2020.
