A Christmas Star Will Light Up The Arizona Sky For The First Time In Centuries

What a rough year 2020 has been. If only we had some sort of guiding light; a beacon of hope to usher in better days. That wish will become reality on December 21, when the Star of Bethlehem—or Jupiter and Saturn passing so close by one another, they appear as but one star—is set to rise over Arizona. This rare celestial phenomenon hasn’t been visible from Earth in nearly 800 years, and it promises a bright ending to the bleakest of years.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
