Jupiter and Saturn will come closer to each other in the Earth's night sky than they have for nearly a millennium between December 16 and 25 in an extremely rareastronomical extravaganza.
This winter solstice, Jupiter and Saturn will fascinate the night sky once more! The distance between them will be much less that it has been from the last 800 years.
Researchers have pointed out that after sunset on December 21, Jupiter and Saturn will appear closer together in the night sky than they have been since the Middle Ages, appearing to be a double planet, they mentioned that they have never seen for many years.
The next time Saturn and Jupiter will align will be in March 2080. "On the morning of March 4, 1226, you must return to see a closer alignment between these objects visible in the night sky". Image adapted by Open Source Planet Software Stellarium Graphics.

The National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand shared photographs of the "smiling moon" and announced that Jupiter and Saturn will be at their closest in 397 years in December. The planets will be brilliantly shining in the sky to be observable in sundown, which may be the best a ideal timing to attempt to see them if you are residing in the US.
'Viewing that would be manageable if the weather cooperates and you have an unobstructed view to the southwest'.

Streb couldn't get a 14-foot birdie try to drop at the 72nd hole, his two-under 68 putting him level with Kisner on 19-under 263. Knowing his chip had to go in, he ran it some 20 feet by and holed that for a meaningless par with Streb inches away.
