Default Jupiter - Neptune triple conjunction

I just happened to notice that Jupiter and Neptune are near
conjunction. I did a google search on this found an interesting
factoid that we get a triple conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune this
year. May 25th, July 13th and Dec 20th. It's a pity that Neptune isn't
a magnitude or so brighter as it would look like a wayward Galilean
Moon.
