Winter Solstice and the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn

  • It’s the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere, which technically means at 5:02am ET the sun will appear directly over the Tropic of Capricorn. You probably know it as the shortest day of the year and the start of winter.
  • Also, keep your eyes peeled tonight for Jupiter and Saturn appearing closer together than they have in almost 800 years. Saturn’s the one with huge rings on it. A conjunction this close isn’t expected to happen again until 2080.
