Astrognome Scrapbook Planetary Conjunction 1186

Planetary Conjunction 15th September 1186

On September 15th 1186 there was a close conjunction of planets in the evening sky with Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn all being within 13 degrees of each other just as the sun set. The Moon in September 1186 was new on September 18th so was not visible during this conjunction.

On May 17, 2000, five solar-system planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn plus the moon were within 19 degrees of each other. It was a notable heavenly conjunction. All manner of natural catastrophes were predicted but failed to materialize.

And just like the conjunction in 1186 of which I am sure there were many dire warnings of catastrophes humanity survived nicely!!
