Yesterday morning we rose before first light in the hope of witnessing the Venus-Jupiter conjunct on the horizon.
At 3 am the sky appeared to be cloudy, and rain began to fall during our journey towards the beach. As we parked the car, first light was breaking, and the clouds were scattering to give us a relatively unobstructed view of the two planets rising.
It was indeed an exciting moment to see the two brightest planets positioned together. However, the phenomena proved to be a lot fainter than we anticipated. It certainly wasn't the 'star of Bethlehem' like we thought.
This was mainly due to the proximity of Venus to the suns rays. In just a few days time she will not be visible at all. Also, Jupiter has just emerged from being in the sun's rays - also not at his brightest presentation.
However, the planets were on top of each another and appeared as a bright speck of pulsating light. This itself was heart opening with the intimate duo emanating oscillations of love and joy from afar onto the earth and its inhabitants.
