2020 December 15 = Great Conjunction: Saturn and Jupiter Converge

Recently, I've been looking* for S & J while leaving work (at about the right time, and with a clear SW horizon). Coming soon to a clear (hopefully) sky near you. :grin:

*But my eyesight sucks, I will definitely need optical aid near the conjunction.

2020 December 24: Portrait of NGC 1055

Note: Clicking on the image gives a larger field of view (showing more faint galaxies, especially on the right edge).
