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

There’s no getting around the fact that 2020 has been a bleak year, and a rare celestial event taking place in a few weeks will add some much-needed brightness and hope. On December 21, the Star of Bethlehem – which is actually Jupiter and Saturn passing so close by one another that they appear to move as one – will rise over the Texas night sky. This “Christmas Star” hasn’t been visible from Earth in nearly 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
