New Delhi: The planets Jupiter and Saturn will be closest to each other on Monday (December 21, 2020), known as the biggest celestial miracle of the century. The big connection will be seen in the evening sky between 6.30-7.30 on Monday evening.
You will need a binoculars or a small telescope to make this event better. Not only will this make your planet look better, but it will also provide you with four moons to orbit around Jupiter.
This event was last seen 400 years ago, in 1623, and the next event in 2080.
On July 16, 1623, the two planets were 5’10 “(five minutes and 10 seconds) apart from 6’06 on December 21st.” There are two other examples of Jupiter and Saturn approaching. This year is as close as we can testify.
Henry Trop, an astronomer in the planetary science department at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) headquarters in Washington, D.C., said: The time of sunset is determined by the slope of the Earth’s axis. “The weekend is the longest night of the year, so it’s a rare opportunity for people to go out and see the solar system.”
The connection also coincides with a December holiday, the shortest in the northern hemisphere and the longest in the south.
Although the plants are separated from each other, because of their proximity, they appear as big stars like the Christmas star in the Bible or the star of Bethlehem, and they appeared in the eastern sky when Jesus Christ was born.
According to NASA, Saturn will fade slightly because it is on the largest planet on the left side of the solar system. These units will be replaced after December 21st.
Meanwhile, the Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium in Bengal has arranged to see celestial bodies of Jupiter and Saturn. “If the weather allows, we set up a telescope in our house on Monday night to see the connection between Jupiter and Saturn,” the tour official said in a statement.
