About the Event

For the first time in nearly 800 years, a rare Christmas star will light up the sky at the start of this month’s winter solstice, a shiny beacon that will be visible from our area without a telescope. Interestingly enough, the Christmas Star isn't actually a star. It's a rare alignment of Jupiter and Saturn where the planets are so close to one another that they actually appear as one giant star.

We invite you to view this astronomical wonder with us at Wesley. We will gather just before sunset at 5:30 PM, with the Christmas star forecasted to be best viewed at about 6:30 PM. We will have time to share our favorite Christmas stories and sing a few carols during our time together.

Masks are required for those older than 2 years and physical distancing will be practiced.

Please bring your own chair or blanket.
