Photographer Jim Baugh captured the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn referred to by some as the “Christmas Star” filmed tonight next to the “Star of Roanoke Virginia”.
From Jim: Clear night but the planets are pretty low on the horizon, lots of atmosphere to look through. But if you look you can see the moons of Jupiter. (some at least).
Tip: check out Orion tonight, really awesome sight. Cheers and Merry Christmas.
