Once every 20 years, the orbits of Earth, Jupiter and Saturn align such as to make the gas giants appear close together in the night sky. This event called "great conjunction" is special this year because the two planets would not appear this close in night sky for next 60 years, NASA said in a release. The event will occur on December 21 -- the longest night in the northern hemisphere.
