Despite the chatter about apparent superpowers on 21 December, here’s what actually happens. On Monday night, Jupiter and Saturn will come so close together astronomers are calling it a once in a lifetime event. According to the AP, the last time the planets would have been as close as they are coming would have been approximately 1623.
Astronomers note that people should look closely in the sky probably to the southwest of wherever they’re standing.
One of the last real times this happened this close other than 1623 would have been back in the 1200 ‘s.
Of course don’t forget your binoculars if you’re looking to get a good view or perhaps even a camera that zooms in well. The next time that such will happen will be least 2080.
