People throughout India and the remaining of the world witnessed a uncommon celestial phenomenon, the good conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter.
The celestial occasion made Jupiter and Saturn seem as one vibrant star within the night time sky.
The occasion was seen to the bare eye.
This is the primary time in over 400 years that the 2 appeared so shut to one another, although common conjunctions happen each 20 years.
This is the closest these two planets have been recorded since 1623.
That Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn befell greater than a decade after the telescope was invented.
Before 1623, the Great Conjunction befell in 1226.
Here are some of the glimpses.
