We have been waiting 800 years for the stars will reveal a cosmic Christmas miracle when Jupiter and Saturn align on December 21st. These planets will align so closely, forming a bright point, “Star of Bethlehem.”

To see this majestic sight keep an eye on the southwest approximately 25 after the sun sets this Winter Solstice. The two planets will be closest on December 21st, but we will see Jupiter and all of December for about an hour after sunset here in the northern hemisphere. Be sure to stop and enjoy this spectacular holiday treat.
