Jupiter ja Saturnus - 17.12.2020 at 15.15 - 17.12.2020 at 15.50 Kiiminki Observation number 95213

Visibility III / V

Pekka Kangas, Oulun Arktos

It went hard, but the weather became clear just in time for the lunar sickle to appear. A bit of a humble couple staring at Christmas when they were so low. Saturn was barely distinguished by the naked eye when the magnitude was of the order of +1.28.

It was 12 degrees below zero, so the fingers and toes were pretty icy in the end. It was still worth leaving. While waiting for the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter on March 1, 2023, perhaps also on April 30, 2022 from the day sky you can try.
