“Jupiter and Saturn are only going to be one tenth of a degree in the sky, which is so close that if you extend your pink at arm’s length, you will be able to cover both planets very easily with your pink. ” NASA astronomer Henry Thurup said.
According to NASA, the planets will be visible to the naked eye as the sun moves southwest. NASA says that on Monday, they will appear so close that a pink finger at arm’s length will cover both planets in the sky.
Stargazers can see the “Christmas Star” on the evening of December 21, the same day as the winter solstice, when more than one sun sets from one of the Earth’s poles.
