In this context, astronomer at Rice University, Patrick Hartigan, said in a statement, “The alignments between these two planets are rare and happen once every 20 years or so, but this alignment is extremely rare because of how close the two planets are to each other.” Adding that the last time the two giant planets came close to each other on a single line was in 1226.
According to the newspaper, the world will witness the rare phenomenon after sunset on December 21, with the beginning of the winter solstice.
Hartigan confirmed that between December 16 and 25, the two planets will be separated by less than a full moon. The world population everywhere will be able to see the historical event as the two planets approach, but the closer the population to the northern regions of the planet Earth, the longer they see the phenomenon, he said.
