A big thank you for your continued support, and we wish you all a brighter, safer, and upbeat New Year!

Rare "Planetary Kiss" on December Solstice

On December 21, 2020 Saturn and Jupiter will meet in the sky, creating the closest Great Conjunction in 397 years! So close, they will almost look like one great planet or star in the sky. Coincidentally, it happens on the day of the Northern Hemisphere's winter solstice, and the Southern Hemisphere's summer solstice.

Some people believe that it was the great conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter that the Three Wise Men saw the night Jesus was born. No wonder popular media is calling the conjunction the Christmas Star and the Star of Bethlehem!

Can I see the Great Conjunction?
