In what is called the Great Conjunction of 2020, you can see the Christmas Star on December 21 for the first time in 800 years. It's not really a star at all, but it is what you see when Jupiter and Saturn align very closely on December 21, as seen from anywhere on Earth. In fact, can can see the two planets now as they draw closer to each other every night. A star twinkles, but a planet appears like a bright, steady light.
This Star of Bethlehem is a symbol of hope when we need it most.
