When two bodies appear to close together in the sky, i.e. they have the same Right Ascension. Mercury & Venus are said to be at Superior Conjunction when they are behind the Sun, and at Inferior Conjunction when they are in front of it. The outer planets are simply said to be at conjunction when they pass behind the Sun.
