The Christmas Star

The great conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter happened on Monday...

DD and I drove west about thirty minutes and found a good-ish spot to see the event. If you could call it an "event," lol.


The two planets shone brightest when we first arrived and seemed to dim as darkness deepened.

I'm not sure what we were expecting, but the whole thing was a little disappointing. I thought it'd be a bit larger and brighter over all...I mean portrayals of the Christmas Star are usually these huge shining things.

But as DD pointed out we have a lot of light and general pollution these days that wasn't around back then.

Never-the-less, I'm going to hold on to the notion that God might have, shall we say, embellished!

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
