Winter began at 11:02 in Graz (GMT+1) and at 17:20 Jupiter and Saturn will be only 0.1 degrees apart causing them to look like a single elongated star. Unfortunately, we have been socked in with fog and low hanging clouds for two weeks and today is more of the same. So, we will be watching online via the virtual telescope project ran by the Bellatrix Observatory in Italy.
To understand what this amazing double whammy of Solstice AND Great Conjunction means I highly recommend the astute insights of the Astro Twins. Oh no! I think I just rolled my eyes so hard that I hurt myself. I hope I can pop them back in place in time to watch the Great Conjunction online.
Stay safe, and don’t let the candles go out tonight if you live in the Northern Hemisphere.
