The Great Conjunction.

The Great Conjunction.
Don't miss it:

APOD -- The Great Conjunction (10/20/2020)
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

December 21.  Jupiter and Saturn get closer until then, viewable early evening.

You only get Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions every 20 years, and this is the closest since a long time.  Only 6.5 arc minutes.  They will both fit in a telescope view.

I am getting a new telescope soon, which should be perfect for this event.

I've seen enough movies to know this is either a really bad thing or mystical forces will be at play...

The greatest conjunction is ‘but’.

Yet, but the only scientists who can fix it are being held captives by a band of swarthy individuals who are definitely NOT PLO. Because, you know, FATWA LIVES MATTER.

Why is this conjunction great?   Saturn Jupiter conjunction happens approximately every 14 years.   Some might be closer.  Some farther.    but just because it is closer hardly warrant the hyperbole of “great”.

If you can get 3-4 planet to all be in conjunction then that would be something and might warrant “great”.  If Jupiter or one of the moons of Jupiter actually eclipse Saturn, that would be great. 

But a bit closer than usual, mahhhh.
