- Amateurs / Astrophotographers 


  • The joint vision of Jupiter and Saturn is an inspiring image, a true Gathering of Giants capable of raising our gaze towards the sky. We would like to have your observation of both planets. Whether you are a fan of deep sky astrophotography, or if you prefer planetary photography or even night landscapes, we invite you to observe these planets during the next few nights and send us your observations to the gallery of photographs that we are preparing.

  • We are especially interested in the photographs that show the conjunction on different dates as both planets gradually get closer to each other until they end only 6 minutes apart on December 21, to progressively move away from that moment. If you wish to send us your images, please send your photographs to J. Álvaro, <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>, along with your name. The images will also be available on this web page and, if they are very numerous, we will make a complete gallery and another of selected images.

Desde hoy hasta el próximo 21 de Diciembre 2020, vamos a estudiar la gran conjunción. Veremos cómo se mueven los planetas en el cielo, y en concreto cómo Júpiter “se acerca” a Saturno. Esto no volverá a ocurrir hasta dentro de 60 años.
