Karachi: Scientists say that on the night of December 21, the two largest planets in the solar system, Jupiter and Saturn, will meet in such a way that they will look like a double planet to the human eye.
This scene can be witnessed all over the world including Pakistan on the night of December 21 if the weather is clear.
And this time the reunion is taking place at a time when some believe it was the source of the bright light seen in the sky 2,000 years ago, now known as the Star of Bethlehem.
The Star of Bethlehem, commonly known as the Christmas star, a major seasonal symbol around the world. However, It’s an illustration taken from creativity and greeting cards, not from the Bible.
The two planets will be seen very close on the night of December 21, completing their orbits close to each other.
In the UK, too, astronomers will keep a close eye on the weather to avoid astronomical disappointment so they can see the remarkable sight with their own eyes.
Caroline Crawford, an astronomer at the Cambridge University’s Institute of Astronomy says that if it were seen in the evening, it was a sight to behold, but this time the weather was not clear.
If the December weather doesn’t disappoint, the two planets will be visible in the southwestern part of the sky immediately after sunset.
Both planets will appear in the southwestern sky just above the horizon immediately after sunset.
