We are now a week away from the Grand Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn and these planets are getting very close! All throughout this week and next the planets will be within less than a half-degree apart, only a single lunar diameter. This is the same size as the eraser of a pencil held out at arm’s length. Try it and see! If you miss this historically close Grand Conjunction, you’ll have a chance to see another even closer… in the year 2080! Don’t wait 60 years, watch this week! (And don’t wait until the closest day on December 21 to start watching! If you have clear skies this week, take a look.) #conjunction#jupiter#Saturn#grandconjunction
