Jordan- An astronomical meeting between two planets soon … has not happened in 800 years


(MENAFN – Amman Net) Astronomers expect a rare meeting between the planets of Jupiter and Saturn, on the 21st of December, in an accident that has not been recorded for about 800 years.

The two planets began approaching each other since last summer, and it is expected that they will appear at a later time, and the distance between them has become less than the distance of the full moon.

The British newspaper Daily Mail said that the two planets will converge immediately after sunset, on the winter solstice.

It is expected that the scene will be visible from any point on the planet, but those on the equator will have a greater opportunity to observe it.

The two planets will not return to close to each other to this degree, until the fifteenth of the year 2080, at which time they will be at a point higher than the earth, and their visibility will be possible for a longer period.

After that, this convergence of the two planets will not happen again until 2400, that is, centuries later.
