Christmas star tonight

Started by: Anne (3870) 

Saturn and Jupiter will come close together tonight making them appear as one exceptionally bright star. Look south west just over the horizon, weather permitting. Next one will be 2080.
It has been suggested this was the star of Bethlehem.
Before 6-30pm

I saw it last night, Anne, and they were very close together.

This evening, just after sunset, look to the south west and there it will be.

Weather permitting, of course.

Well could this signal the second coming of Christ ?

or

The coming of the Antichrist

Because they reckon that the Star of Bethlehem was a connjunction of planets, stars or a Supernova.

We three Kings of Orient are
One in a taxi one in a car
One on a scooter, blowing his hooter
Following yonder star

Never let anyone tell you what you can, or cannot, do.

Just look at Beethoven.
Everyone told him he would never be a musician because he was deaf.

But did he listen?
