Also looking forward to the conjunction though for those that are interested, the planets will only be about 15 deg. above the horizon as twilight is deepening. You will need a clear unobstructed view to the west and because the planets will be low they will not be good telescopic targets if you are expecting to see any surface detail.
Generally I would think that the conjunction would be great binocular or wide field telescope event or even just naked eye. Throw in the thin crescent moon on the 17th and it will be a fine sight and imaging opportunity.
