The weather is still looking good for the conjuncture of Jupiter and Saturn Monday night! Two little “stars” will seemingly become one in our early evening sky. After seeing Saturn (the dimmer “star) for all these many months, it will be so weird to see it disappear behind Jupiter. Pretty neat stuff!
