In a once-in 800-year phenomena, we will be able to witness the “Christmas Star” or “Star of Bethlehem” on December 21.

This will happen as Jupiter and Saturn will line up really close to each other, almost as if colliding to become a blazing point of light.

Though the two planets have a rare, 20-yearly occurring alignment, this time it will be a rare experience because of how close the Jupiter and Saturn will be. It will look like a “double planet” for first time since Middle Ages, said Forbes.

The celestial event will be observable from anywhere on Earth where skies are clear.

Another “great conjunction” which is this close won’t happen again for the next 60 years until March 15, 2080.
