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

The well-known phrase “when the stars align” will mean much more this year, and in a year when we need it the most. A rare event will occur on the night of the winter solstice and we may have a unique opportunity to see what many are calling a Christmas star over Kentucky. While this isn’t exactly a singular star, it could make for a pretty memorable event and one you’ll definitely want to watch for on December 21st.

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

On a clear night, the moon, stars, and planets often put on a beautiful show and on December 21st we will hopefully witness one of the best sights in centuries. Look for a Christmas star over Kentucky and enjoy a rare celestial occurrence that won’t come around for another six decades. Will you look for the Christmas star over Kentucky?
