Happy Solstice

Post by Zasso Nouka »

Happy solstice everyone.

Shortest day of the year today so from now on days will start getting longer although we'll have to wait till the 23rd to see it.

Also today Jupiter and Saturn are in conjunction and to the naked eye appear as a single star. Easiest way to see it is to load up Google Sky onto your phone or just after sunset nip outside and look towards the south western horizon. Although these conjunctions happen around every 20 years this one is particularly close and they won't get this close again for a very very long time.
