Christmas Star

23 Dec

Christmas Star

Monday, December 21, the day of the winter solstice, in the sky visible from our Earth, the two planets Saturn and Jupiter approached, until they reached a minimum distance. A perspective effect, since Saturn is in fact about 700 million kilometers further from the Sun than Jupiter. The conjunction was very close, and the planets were separated for only 6 minutes of arc, or one fifth of the lunar diameter. In fact, this reconciliation takes place about every 20 years, but it had not been so close since … the year 1623! It is as if the two planets have formed a single star, hence the name of the Christmas star.
