A Christmas Star?

There is a rare opportunity, on December 21, 2020, this first day of winter, to see Jupiter and Saturn aligned in the evening sky. It gives the appearance of a single bright star, visible to the naked eye, that earns the designation “Christmas star,” likely because of proximity to the holiday. The Post and Courier offers great background information on the phenomenon in an article published today. Access it here.
