The image from SOHO shows Saturn near the Sun, from Earth’s perspective, on the left, while Jupiter is much farther out.
Astronomy site Space Weather said: “Remember last month’s Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn?
“The two gas giants are still close together but don’t look for them now. It will hurt your eyes.
“Jupiter and Saturn are converging on the sun, overhead in the blue sky at noon. Human eyes cannot see them, but SOHO can.”
Unfortunately, as the planets are so close to the Sun, they can only be seen using specialised equipment such as SOHO.
