Special Sky Observation Programme

Sky Observation Programme for observing the conjunction of planets visible in night sky

The night sky offers ever-changing display of fascinating objects, from stars and constellations to bright planets, often the moon, and sometimes special events like meteor showers. The sky gazers will have special treat throughout this month as, they can see 3 planets as darkness falls: Mars, Saturn and Jupiter.

A rare solar spectacular display is happening during the month of December. Saturn and Jupiter, our two gas giants in the solar system, are edging closer and closer together and are set to “conjoin” together on the Winter Solstice. That occurs on December 21st.Jupiter and Saturn will keep drawing nearer to each other in sky, as we approach their great conjunction on December 21, 2020. Most conjunctions of bright planets and stars are much wider than the December 21, 2020, Saturn-Jupiter conjunction. Jupiter and Saturn will be so close that they will appear to form a "double planet" The great conjunction, as the planetary alignment has come to be known, hasn't occurred in nearly 800 years.

When their orbits align every 20 years, Jupiter and Saturn get extremely close to one another. This occurs because Jupiter orbits the sun every 12 years, while Saturn's orbit takes 30 years.  On 21st December Jupiter will race ahead of Saturn. This overtaking of Jupiter will be hallmark event in December night sky.
