Actor Orlando Bloom witnessed this special night of December 21, where Jupiter and Saturn, the largest planets of the Solar System, passed so close to each other for the first time after 1623 with his wife Katy Perry and shared those moments with his followers on his Instagram account.
According to NASA’s statement, the Great Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction could be viewed in the southwest direction in the sky about an hour after sunset, and people were able to watch this conjunction, especially in New York, with the naked eye.
The orbits of these planets align two giant gas masses every 20 years each year. It is the first time since 1623 that the two planets have crossed so close to each other, and for the first time in 800 years, it can be seen with the naked eye at night.
On Monday, Orlando Bloom took Instagram to share this one of a kind experience with his followers with a couple of snaps. In the photos, he was with his wife Katy Perry and they were looking through a really big telescope. Furthermore, Bloom took a few photos of the moon and planets from his phone which he described as great shots.
Here’s the caption:
“It’s called The Great Conjunction seen the closest since July 16th 1623 only 14 years after the first telescope was invented. As seen here, taken by my iPhone thru this real big telescope 🔭.
Also – the moon cos I managed to get a great shot…Also – my moon looking at the moon #stargazing just a reminder of how tiny we are in the great scheme of things 🪐🌗💫”
This great experience reminded Orlando Bloom how tiny people are in the great scheme of things and in the universe. He also called Katy Perry as his ‘moon‘ which melted the hearts of not only their fans but also his ex-wife Miranda Kerr’s, as she wrote a special comment.
Here’s what Miranda Kerr wrote:
“You guys are too cute!!! 🥰💖🥰”
Orlando Bloom didn’t write back anything but other users left comments under the post.
