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

Astronomy buffs of Indiana, you’re certainly not going to want to miss this! On December 21st, coincidentally falling upon the winter solstice, we’ll be treated to a celestial event that hasn’t been seen by human eyes for over 800 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

Hoosiers interested in watching the “Christmas Star” line up should look into the southwest sky about 45 minutes after sunset. Sunset occurs in Indiana at 5:24 p.m. on December 21st, so it would be wise to head outside and start looking at around 6:09 p.m.
