Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn - 'Christmas Star'

"Want to see something that astronomers have been waiting 800 years to witness? Just step outside at sunset and look southwest. Jupiter and Saturn are having their finest conjunction since the Middle Ages. At closest approach on Dec. 21st, Saturn will appear as close to Jupiter as some of Jupiter's moons."

A recent SpaceWeather post gave an over view of this Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, what some are calling the "Christmas Star."
