Jupiter and Saturn are getting closer and closer, and on the 21st, they will be close enough to BOTH fit in the view of the eyepiece! If you start watching now, you’ll notice them draw closer and closer together.
It’s pretty neat that this date also lives up with the Winter Solstice. This is the first Jupiter-Saturn conjunction since 2000, and the closest since 1623 (only 14 years after Galileo make this first telescope). The next time that these two gas giants will be close like this again won’t be until 2080. You don’t want to miss this month’s exciting close pairing of Jupiter and Saturn low in the southwest after sunset!
CCAS will be having a short viewing and session at 5:30pm on December 21st!
