This December, we're certainly in for a treat as there will be a rare sight to be seen - and, to make it even better, you'll be able to see it from your own home!

Keep reading to how you can see this rare sighting of Jupiter and Saturn for yourself - you're not going to want to miss this one!

Are you ready to see something good?

Then you'll have to look up!

As there's a pretty exciting event happening this December...

And no, we don’t mean a visit from Santa Claus.

Though, that itself is pretty exciting.

We mean, you'll have to look up as there something pretty exciting happening in the sky.

Something super rare will hit this Christmas...

Something so rare in fact, that it hasn't been seen in a very long time.

Next month, we will see Jupiter and Saturn line up with each other.

Astronomers have said the planets will line up in a way not seen since the Middle Ages.

When the sun sets on December 21st, those looking up to the sky will see Jupiter and Saturn very close.

Closer than anyone alive has ever seen them before.

Rice University astronomer, Patrick Hartigan, explained in a statement:

"Alignments between these two planets are rather rare, occurring once every twenty years or so, but this conjunction is exceptionally rare because of how close the planets will appear to one another. You'd have to go all the way back to just before dawn on March 4, 1226, to see a closer alignment between these objects visible in the night sky," as per The Independent.

The movement of the 2 planets has been happening since the summertime...

And they will reach their optimum between December 16th and Christmas Day.

By the time that they reach their peak, the 2 planets will be separated by less than the width of a full moon.

Professor Hartigan added: "On the evening of closest approach on December 21st, they will look like a double planet, separated by only 1/5th the diameter of the full moon."

"For most telescope viewers, each planet and several of their largest moons will be visible in the same field of view that evening."

We will be looking out for it!

People are very excited, to say the least.

But the question you might all be thinking is, will I actually be able to see it?

Well, yes, providing the weather doesn't restrict it.

The 2 planets will be most visible an hour after sunset...

At this point they will appear low in the western sky.

Sounds great, doesn't it?

Just when you thought this year was a total write off.

Will you be watching?

You won't want to miss it as the next one isn't for a long time.

In fact, the next chance to see it is thought to be 2080.

And the one after that is 2400.

So, make sure to keep your eyes peeled this time round!
