Yes! You bet we saw the Christmas “Star”! Or rather, the beautiful conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn on December 21st. Here we share a few shots.
It was such a treat and one we get to enjoy for some time as the planets move farther apart from our perspective. More importantly, this astronomic delight only whets our appetite for the coming of the Morning Star, Jesus Christ himself on Christmas. Then, like the planetary conjunction, we celebrate for not one moment or day but for many days! If you click on any image in the gallery below you can see it at full size. Even if you can’t see the ‘star’, you’ll have to admit that God makes some awesome sunsets in East Tennessee! Merry Christmas!
