Observing Jupiter and Saturn Together

Today, Jupiter and Saturn formed a visible “double planet” for the first time in 800 years. It was also the winter solstice.

The winter solstice of 2020 was a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the planets align!

Bethany and I managed to snap a few photos!

Here is the “double planet” that looks like a single one with the naked eye.

Jupiter and Saturn are the bright spot toward the top left of the tree.

With the binoculars, you can see the two planets distinctly. It took both of us together holding the phone camera and binoculars to make this happen ????
