As Patrick Hartigan, an astronomer at Rice University, noted in an interview with the magazine Forbes: “The alignments between these two planets are quite rare, they occur once every 20 years or so, but this conjunction is exceptionally rare due to how close the planets will appear to be to each other.”
“You would have to go back until just before sunrise on March 4, 1226, to see a closer alignment between these visible objects in the night sky,” he added in statements that collects Clarion.
The sightings can be observed a whole week after sunset on December 21, as reported. What you will see will be something like a double planet, but in reality it is just that the planets will be very close to each other.
