An interesting celestial event happened on Monday, December 21, 2020, when Jupiter and Saturn aligned to create a “Christmas Star”, which is also referred to as the “Great Conjunction” by astrologers.

A lot of people around the world verily anticipated this event. A number of conspiracy theories also emerged ahead of the great conjunction.

According to EarthSky, the last time the “Great Conjunction” was observable with the naked eye was in 1226.

The two planets now won’t appear to meet up again until 2040, though that year’s conjunction will be farther apart.

Here are some photos of the great conjunction:
