The Great Conjunction

On 21st December Jupiter and Saturn will appear to be closer in the sky than they have been for 400 years in an event called the Great Conjunction. We’re working with the University of Exeter’s Astrophysics group to prepare some videos + resources to explain what it’s all about and how to observe it, culminating in a livestream event.
