An apparent meeting or passing of two or more bodies in space
Conjunction, in astronomy, is an apparent phenomenon caused by the observer's perspective. It occurs when two astronomical objects or spacecraft have either the same right ascension or the same ecliptic longitude, usually as observed from Earth.
