Calling all amateur astronomers! Anyone else going to be watching the skies tonight for the Great Conjunction? Jupiter and Saturn will be separated in our skies by only 0.1 degree tonight. Many biblical scholars say (and I believe them) that this is the Christmas Star that appeared in the sky and lead the wise men to Bethlehem. This will be the first time in 800 years that this event will be visible in the night sky!
My mom dropped off her present to me yesterday so I could attempt to view the event with a telescope. So cool!!! Unfortunately the weather here is supposed to be mostly cloudy so I'm likely to miss it. Not cool.
Anyone else into astronomy?
That said - are there any board games that you like that deal with astronomy? I can think of a few but I haven't played them.#The Search for Planet X seems really cool and is definitely about astronomy. Not too sure if I would enjoy the deduction/puzzle aspect but maybe I would!
Let me know which board games you like that have this theme!
