Between now and Dec 21 Saturn & Jupiter approach each other on the sky until a mere tenth of a degree separates them. Last time this happened Galileo was alive.
The solar system: A Cosmic Ballet, choreographed by the forces of gravity.
Joe Rao tells all:
@neiltyson Here's the haiku I wrote for the occasion:

Weak forces moving the sky
Moons all together
@neiltyson If you really focus on the sun, your eyes will hurt.
@neiltyson I have loved watching them approach each other all autumn. Hoping they are high enough in the sky to see on 12/21, however.
@neiltyson So there been getting closer together all summer long? Loved watching them each night.
#AskGOT7 Is there any in the members who are also want to try pursuing acting?? I'm also curious if JB will also comeback in acting? I really like the dream high, when a man falls in love when you are being cast.
