Jupiter and Saturn descend on world’s tallest building in epic ‘Great Conjunction’ video


#On #Monday (#Dec. 21), #Jupiter and #Saturn appeared closer together in the night sky than they had in 800 years. #To the naked eye, this “#Great #Conjunction” looked like a single, massive celestial object shining over the #Earth. #But to telescopes — and consumer cameras equipped with telescopic lenses — the planets showed their individual faces in stunning detail as they promenaded across the sky.

#Florian #Kriechbaumer, a photographer in the #United #Arab #Emirates, caught the celestial spectacle from one of #Earth’s most sky-scraping locations: #Near #Burj #Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. #In a large parking area across from the skyscraper (which stands 2,720 feet, or 830 meters, tall), #Kriechbaumer filmed the conjunction for 45 minutes, capturing the moment that the two planets made their closest approach to one another (from his vantage point).
