Conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter

Pushpa Gujral Science City, in collaboration with Rotary Club International, offered opportunity to more than 200 students to watch live a rare celestial event on Monday evening as the Planets Jupiter and the Saturn appeared to merge and looked like a single bright star, in what is called the “Great Conjunction”. This Conjunction is an astronomical event that occurred on December 21, 2020. Saturn and Jupiter, the two largest planets of our solar system, nearly overlapped by coming as close as 0.10, an event that hasn't been visible since the Middle Ages. The program was organized at Khalsa Sen. Secondary School, Kharar. The occurrence of this celestial event is so rare that the last time this conjunction happened was about 400 years and the last time it could be actually seen was in 1226.
