What is the Great Conjunction?
The great conjunction is when the planets align or get close together. The great conjunction that is occurring today is extra special because it is when Jupiter and Saturn will be 0. 1 apart and stargazers will have the opportunity to witness it after sunset, (as long as there is not too much overcast).
NASA says, for those who would like to see this phenomenon for themselves, here’s what to do:
Find a spot with an unobstructed view of the sky, such as a field or park. Jupiter and Saturn are bright, so they can be seen even from most cities.
An hour after sunset, look to the southwestern sky. Jupiter will look like a bright star and be easily visible. Saturn will be slightly fainter and will appear slightly above and to the left of Jupiter until December 21, when Jupiter will overtake it and they will reverse positions in the sky.
The planets can be seen with the unaided eye, but if you have binoculars or a small telescope, you may be able to see Jupiter’s four large moons orbiting the giant planet.
The last time that this happened was 800 years ago back in July 1623, However, during that time it was difficult to see because it was closer to the sun. The last time it was visible was back in 1226! The next time this will occur will be 60 years from now.
