Ove godine vidjet ?emo “Boži?nu zvijezdu” | This year we will witness the “Christmas star”

Kako se Boži? bliži, promatra?i neba bit ?e po?aš?eni nebeskim ?udom koje nije vi?eno tako jasno od 1226. godine – Boži?nom zvijezdom!

Rijetki fenomen doga?a se kad se Jupiter i Saturn jako približe i ?ini se da se gotovo sudaraju, stvaraju?i dojam dvostruke planete, kad se gleda sa Zemlje.

Neki astronomi vjeruju da je tzv. Betlehemska zvijezda u biblijskoj pri?i o jaslicama bila spoj Jupitera, Saturna i Marsa.

Kako god, promatra?i neba vidjet ?e ju nakon zalaska sunca 21. prosinca – datuma zimskog solsticija – dvogledom ili malim teleskopom, kako poru?uju iz NASA-e.


As Christmas approaches, sky gazers will be treated to a celestial wonder that hasn?t been seen so clearly since 1226 ? a ?Christmas star.?

The rare phenomenon occurs when Jupiter and Saturn get very close and appear to nearly collide, giving the impression of a double planet when viewed from Earth.

Some astronomers believe that the ?star of Bethlehem? in the Nativity story was a conjunction of Jupiter, Saturn and Mars.

Skywatchers hoping to spot Jupiter and Saturn, and their near-collision in the sky, can do so after sunset on Dec. 21 ? the date of winter solstice ? through binoculars or a small telescope, according to NASA.
