On My Mind

The Christmas Star!

The great Jupiter and Saturn conjunction, aka the ‘Christmas Star’, happens tonight and it’s the winter solstice to boot! This is the closest Jupiter and Saturn, the two largest planets in our solar system, have come to each other since a great conjunction in 1623 and the best since 1226.  Tonight, the planets will look like two bright stars that are almost touching. My dad, a scientist, would’ve insisted we witness an event like this and Mother would’ve bundled us up in snowsuits and handed each child a pair of binoculars and a thermos of hot chocolate. I plan to do just the same tonight with my own family.

Thermos, boots,  mittens, binoculars.

  • It is exciting! Star gazing is the most awe inspiring activity, we are but specks in the universe. Unfortunately, the cloud cover where I am means not a chance of seeing it.
    Wishing you a good view and a happy holiday season.
