    Is anyone else stoked to view it? It'll be the best view of the every-20-year occurrence since 1623.

    My son and I already have a nice location staked out at the top of a hill in an old orange grove.

    Enjoy!

    This lends credence to the idea that the star leading the Magi to the baby Jesus was a similar conjunction, perhaps of three planets. The astrologers of the day would have been aware of it.

    Nice!

    I only wish I had a go-to spot outside the umbrella of light-pollution around my city.

    I belong to a local astronomy club but that is not a huge deal in Pennsylvania, most nights are totally cloudy or now for the past week, foggy.

    So I just WISH I could see the good stuff.

    Like the latest meteor shower, I was able to watch one about 15 years ago but whenever one is announced, forget seeing anything here.

    Our skies are more like England.
