On December 22nd, Jupiter and Saturn appeared closer to the sky than they have since March 4, 1226. The nearly 800-year event is known as this Great connectionwhich sometimes occurs every two decades. However, in true 2020 fashion, this year’s get-together was the most acute in centuries.

To like others around the world, Photographer Jason De Freitas shot the event even though its picture is particularly random because it frames that International space station fly between the luminous planets. De Freitas traveled about an hour from his New South Wales home to the Jellore Lookout, where he used various tracking devices to align and capture the 10-second exposure photo.
