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

It’s been a dark year, but it hasn’t been without a few bright spots, including from an unexpected source: the night sky (remember Comet Neowise?). And something cool is about to happen again in the far reaches of the universe that will be visible from the Mountain State on December 21: Jupiter and Saturn are going to come together and appear as one blazing bright Christmas star.

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

(Just in case you’re thinking we might be a little biased, we’re not the only ones to think that West Virginia might be the best place in the nation to view an astronomical marvel like this one!)
