(Meredith) -- If you need something to look forward to before the end of 2020, look up instead and see a Christmas Star.
The two largest planets in our solar system, Jupiter and Saturn, are getting closer than they have been since the middle ages.
On December 21, the winter solstice, they will be so close, they will appear as a double planet, which will look like a giant star.
To find them, look low in the western sky for about an hour after sunset each evening between December 16 and Christmas.
According to NASA, while the two planets may appear close, they are still hundreds of millions of miles apart.
