Taking a few moments to write a short blog post this morning to share a photo I took yesterday evening. If you haven’t looked up at the evening sky to see the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction don’t wait too long. They can be clearly seen with the naked eye, and if you have a pair of binoculars, the planets are easily identifiable. You also get to see the four Galilean moons around Jupiter.
I also wanted to take this opportunity to wish my readers a blessed Christmas. The sight of this rare astronomical phenomenon over Lija church reminded me of the biblical narrative of the Nativity, with the star that guided the wise men from the East. So in a way it’s a rather appropriate image. I doubt I’ll get to write again before the year is out, so I’ll also wish you all the best for the new year. May it be a year of hope, health, and peace.
