Karachi: Scientists say the distances between Jupiter and Saturn in the sky are decreasing and the proximity is increasing. While from December 16 to December 25, the two planets will be as close to each other as they were 800 years ago. That is, it is one of the rarest astronomical events.

In addition, this scenario will be more clearly seen in countries and regions that are closer to the equator. Pakistan is one of them.

In these areas, Jupiter and Saturn can be seen around the western horizon for about an hour after sunset and enjoy this natural view.

It will have its binoculars and cameras ready from December 16 to 25, because, by March 2080, Saturn and Jupiter will not be so close to each other. And then another scene like this will appear in 2400!

According to experts, the apparent distance between Jupiter and Saturn in the sky from December 16 to 25. It will be only about one-fifth (20%) of the full moon’s width (diameter).

On December 21, the two planets will be at the shortest distance from each other. While after December 25, they will start moving away from each other again.
