Here are a few photos taken this evening with my family on Antelope Island, on the certified International Dark Sky parks. One of the best place to observe the Lights in the Firmament. The sun, moon and stars(and planets) were meant to be first for signs, then for seasons, and then for days/years. We read in Genesis 1:14
"And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days, and years"
The Great Conjunction occured tonight on the Winter Solstice. This alignment falls almost directly between the two Total Solar Eclipses that will crisscross over America. These signs in the heavens form an interesting chiasm.

“and the people began to forget those signs and wonders which they had heard, and began to be less and less astonished at a sign or a wonder from Heaven, insomuch that they began to be hard in their hearts and blind in their minds, and began to disbelieve all which they had heard and seen,”Christ prophesied in Luke 21:25 that in the last days there shall be signs in the heavens.
"And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars;"
|Interesting as we were driving out there was an "alignment" of birds flying across the sunset|
