Stunning Pictures by Amateurs: Jupiter & Saturn Captured During The Great Conjunction

Australians flocked around the coasts to witness the great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn last night. It is the first time two planets came so close in four centuries.

Though on the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, the longest night of the year – and the summer solstice in the Southern Hemisphere conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn happens every 20 years, it is the first time since galileo’s era that they came this close to each other.

We have seen thousands making wishes and offering prayers during the planetary action as they believe that the galactic spectacle has the power to make things better.

It is also known as the Christmas Star, the famous star of Bethlehem from the Bible nativity story.

The greatest astronomical occurrence was also visible to the naked eye, where Jupiter and Saturn appeared to be one bright star.

Besides, we could clearly cherish the technological advances as it did not take an expert or a piece of professional equipment to capture the once-in-a-lifetime event.

A photographer successfully captured the moment on film with a three-decade-old camera, which’s considered the most inferior medium in today’s world.
