The Star of Bethlehem Reappears for First Time since the Birth of Christ

Bethlehem StarTonight: Venus, the planet named after the Goddess of Love, and Jupiter, the planet named after the God of Thunder, are crossing each other’s paths. To us, it will look like there is a ‘double star’ in the sky. If you’ve been watching, you will have seen them growing ever closer the past couple of weeks, and growing dangerously closer the past few nights!

Planet Size RelationshipsFrom where we are, it will appear as though they’re almost touching. In reality, they are 416 million miles apart!!
What’s amazing is that they actually look very similar in size, even though Jupiter is by far the largest planet in our solar system, whereas Venus is quite small, even smaller than the Earth (that’s the Sun on the left).

ConjunctionThis meeting in the sky is known as a conjunction. This conjunction between Jupiter and Venus usually isn’t rare, but this is the closest they will have been in 2,000 years! Together, they create the rare Star of Bethlehem.
