Add this Event to Calendar 12/17/2020 07:00 PM 12/17/2020 08:15 PM The Greatest Conjunction on the Darkest Night (Virtual Program)

Science writer and YouTuber Ralph Crewe will deliver an astronomy talk and digital night sky tour highlighting the upcoming great conjunction of the gas giant planets Jupiter and Saturn. On the winter solstice, December 21st, the two enormous planets will appear so close to one another in the night sky as to be visible within the same field of view of a telescope, a rare occurrence that only happens once every twenty years!
