Great Conjunction

The ‘Great Conjunction’ or the ‘Christmas Star’ is an astronomical event in which the 2 largest planets in our Solar System, Jupiter and Saturn, will come closest to each other. It coincides with the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere (December 21st). This event is occurring after nearly 400 years. Such conjunction events are not exclusive to Jupiter and Saturn. Other planets and asteroids can also exhibit such alignment.
