Great Conjunction 2020

Like the rest of the planet, I have been awaiting the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn for ages.

Last evening, as dusk fell where I live, an enormous bank of clouds moved in and just sat, enshrouding the horizon into the night. Made for a spectacular sunset, true; yet, I was not able to view the Great Conjunction. 

I have been watching Jupiter and Saturn dance across the sky for months, since they were on the other side of the sky. But at the point when they appear closest, the Heavens remain veiled, alas.


That's sky-watching, I suppose. 

Behold what you can behold. 


All I could say is that the Moon and Mars looked magnificent, high overhead...and that at least the skies were bright and clear here three years ago for the solar eclipse.
