Stargazing on Winter Solstice
Today is Winter Solstice, which makes tonight the longest night of the year.
This year the Winter Solstice is especially special because on this very day there is a “great conjunction" of the planets Jupiter and Saturn in the sky. Tthe two planets will almost touch in the sky. Both planets will be at 0 degrees Aquarius from 20 through 24 December. Larry and I plan to go out tonight to see this.
Stargazing is a wonderful way to experience the universe any night of the year, but tonight it will be particularly special.
