Christmas Star…

Stargazers will be able to see this year’s final awe-inspiring display of shooting stars on the Winter Solstice, 21st December 2020. Called the Ursid Meteor Showers. At it’s peak, the shower will produce 5 meteors per hour at 36 miles per second.

This beautiful display will coincide with the great conjunctionJupiter & Saturn appearing just 0.1 degrees apart, around 1/5th of Moon’s diameter. Referred to as the Christmas Star, it will be the closest these 2 planets have appeared since 1623. A rare, once in a lifetime celestial event for stargazers.
