“Oh Little Star of Bethlehem” ๐ŸŒŸ

On December 21st 2020 Jupiter and Saturn aligned to show a once in a lifetime experience. This hasn’t happened for over 800 years and won’t again for another 400.

I managed to take a shot last night, but I think to experience this properly a telescope would have been needed!

As noted by Johannes Kepler in the 17th century, a similar conjunction occurred in 7 BCE and could be the astronomical origin of the Star of Bethlehem that guided the wise men. Source: The Conversation

Did anyone else get to see this wonderful phenomenon?

  1. My family was texting the whole group last night about seeing this star. A few saw it and took photos but I live in downtown, trees, buildings and constant light hampered my view.
