Heads up for anyone who hasn’t yet heard about the Venus / Jupiter conjunction happening currently. Getting close tonight June 30 and closer tomorrow night. Still time to get out and take a look hopefully its not too cloudy.
I think they are supposed appear to the naked eye as one super bright star, like the Star of Bethlehem which was a similar event.

Have a look from 1/2 hour after sunset to the west, and slightly north... good for 2 hours or so

venus must be rather full, it has been bright lately, outshining jupiter by a good measure.  this should be super cool!

 

i remember a couple of years ago i had a fantastic view of pre-dawn whenever i set off for work and for weeks there was this blinding display of planets!!  some of you will remember.  even the cityfolk were noticing it.

-just because replies haven't been thick n fast in the affirmative to your theorizing , doesn't necessaily mean no-one here cares or understands you , or even that they're asleep because they're not arguing your point the way you see the world and how each paradigm fits into that. I've read so many wondefully worded and DEEP shit on sab over the years, that it rivals published works in some cases.....bloody not as dry that's for shiz. Personally, i'd say, some people here know what you are saying, have probably explored the presented ideas in their own time previously but naturally, would rather, skip, run, twirl and dance to the beat of their own drum when it comes to these matters. So just because someone for example, does not want to fill in a space on your dance card, does not mean that you should stop airing your views for discussion. How many times does a thread metamorphosize like some organic creature flapping it's wings for the first time here in sabland.... and in the end -the seeker finds at the very least- some answers to their question. Alot of the time you need to knead that dough thoroughly before it's ready for the oven tin. -quote from etherealdrifter

I've been watching them get closer together lately, a week ago the moon was right near them, very cool. Didn't realise they were going to align, mad! Even htough I'm in the burbs the night skies are really clear for stars. Councils should make more night-sky friendly lampposts though. Gonna check it out. Might see if the fun gus like it too.

Edit: Also there are apps for phones which are cool, I have SkyGuide and it's pretty decent just to locate stars although it can take some getting used to

Hey there fancy pants play the songs that make us dance.
Play the tunes that make the ladies swoon.
A song for all the lonley hearts, shattered dreams, and broken parts.
It feels like sunny days are comin soon.
