Seen above are Jupiter and Saturn in the race for the Great
Conjunction of December 21, 2020. Though the gas giant and
ringed planet are in conjunction approximately every 20 years,
they’re rarely in such close proximity; the last time they were this
close was nearly 400-years ago. Picture taken December 14, 2020.
