This is described in most places as the “Great Conjunction” because it doesn’t happen very often. The closest approach of Jupiter and Saturn in the sky (they’re a long way apart, but almost in the same direction) is today. It’s cloudy though, so here’s a photo from yesterday. They don’t get much closer.

SpaceX – the Starship is almost there
This is amazing – they are getting so close to having this amazing vehicle working. Maybe SpaceX will be on the Moon before the planned NASA mission for 2024? OK, rapid unplanned disassembly at the end, but so nearly there. The manoeuvre from horizontal flight to vertical for landing is quite a shock!
