At the Winter Solstice,* we saw the planets Jupiter and Saturn form a bright Christmas Star in the sky! It was Jupiter and Saturn’s great conjunction. On that day, December 21st, Jupiter and Saturn lined up so close that they appeared as one bright shining star — the Christmas Star. It was the closest the two planets have appeared in 800 years — perhaps a sign of brighter days to come in 2021.
May the peace and beauty of the Christmas season last throughout the year!
*Monday, December 21st was the first day of winter. It was the winter solstice.
