Hi all.

Just wondering how often Jupiter and Saturn are observable together such as over the next month or two. Is it every couple of years or are we going through a rare event? It's so nice having my 2 favourite targets up together!

Every 20 years or so. They were so close last December you could see both in the same eyepiece view. They are moving apart now.
