Star of Bethlehem Some call this the Star of Bethlehem. In actuality it is two planets, Jupiter and Saturn, in their orbits around the sun that brings them very close to each other. This only happens every 800 years, so I felt very blessed to be able to witness this event. This is a view across the San Joaquin Valley, a distance of about 70 miles from where i was standing. It was covered in a heavy fog. The dark area above the fog and below the clouds is the coast mountain range. The areas of fog that are lit up are lights from the cities and towns and ranches underneath. I wish you all Peace and Joy, Love and Good Health now and in this coming year.
