made a video for the conjunction

I made a quick YouTube video to help RASC members in planning for the "great conjunction" in December, when Jupiter will draw very close to Saturn.

Volume is a bit low, sorry... 

A view of the evening sky for November and December 2020 as Jupiter speeds past Saturn. The Moon passes both in early November but again for dramatic photogenic views on Dec 16-17. The two gas giants are in an appulse on the Dec 21 which should make for a stunning view in a telescope.

If it's not completely cloudy, it should be awesome.


Made some screen snaps for binocular and telescopic views.
