A Christmas Star Will Light Up The Indiana Sky For The First Time In Centuries
By Tori Jane|Published December 11, 2020
Tori Jane is a storm chaser, writer, photographer, and the village idiot - in that order. When she's not out and about dancing with the meanest storms on planet Earth for funsies she can be found wandering, shooting landscapes, writing, editing photos, and otherwise up to no good. Legend has it that she can also be occasionally spotted typing up short bios in the third person, but those rumors are unsubstantiated.
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.
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.
