Moon watcher

two favorite directions to watch: mother earth or the planets in the sky. And what happened Monday nite? something awsome . In Hong Kong we dont get stars because the lights are too strong and want to be themselves the citystars. Anyway we did not miss this gift from the Sky yesterday.

In what’s called a planetary conjunction, the two planets —the brightest in the night sky — will appear extremely close, separated by only the width of a finger held at arm’s length. They won’t be this close together and well-placed for evening viewing again until May 2013.

In fact, some astronomers think a similar alignment of the planets on June 17 in the year 2 BC is behind biblical accounts of the Star of Bethlehem present during Christ’s birth. The bright planets would have appeared so close together they could have been taken as a single shining star.
