  1. No, the "great conjunction" is not and or or.

    This was taken on 12/17/2020, 4 days before the Great conjunction during a brief 15 minutes of clear cky. I was hoping for some clear skies in the following nights but we've had nothing but dense clouds so this is the best I have. Three of the moons of Jupiter are easily visible (Io was behind the planet) and one moon of Saturn (Titan I presume) can just be discerned. The conditions were far from ideal and stability was problematic too but one can see that Saturn is slightly oblate compared to Jupiter due to its rings.
     
  5. This was taken over the Gulf of Thailand on 21-Dec at 18:55 (GMT+7) using Ricoh GR3 50mm crop factor which makes me a little unsure it actually was the conjunction (could a 50mm lens have captured it?). The lights on the horizon are fishing boats.
