San Diego Restaurants and Strip Can Remain Open!
A judge ruled yesterday that San Diego strip clubs can remain open. However this judge’s ruling went far beyond the two strip clubs that sued the state (Cheetahs and Pacers). The judge says this ruling applies to “San Diego County businesses with restaurant services.” So what does this mean? This means San Diego County is now pausing the closure closure enforcement against restaurants and live entertainment businesses. Now it’s just wait and see. The state will most likely appeal the vote. In a statement Gov. Gavin Newsom’s office said they were “disappointed” with the judges decision, and they are reviewing its legal options for next steps.

The ‘Christmas Star’ will form this week!
Dec. 21st is the shortest day of 2020, and it’s the perfect day if you want to see the Christmas star. Jupiter and Saturn, the solar system’s largest planets, can now be seen creeping closer together in the night sky every evening this week. On the winter equinox, those planets will line up almost perfectly to look like a bright double planet in the night sky. The two planets will be so close that they will appear to be touching, separated by one-fifth the diameter of a full moon. When celestial bodies align, astronomers call it a conjunction, but since this one involves our solar system’s two biggest gas giants, it’s technically a “great conjunction.” Because the event is landing on a holiday week, many have begun calling the formation the “Christmas Star.” The planets are likely already visible on the southwest horizon after sunset, and dedicated viewers can see them form into alignment over the next week. Though the two planets will look close together by next Monday, they actually will be more than four times the distance between Earth and the sun. “Look for them low in the southwest in the hour after sunset,” NASA officials said in a press release. And on December 21st, the two giant planets will appear just a tenth of a degree apart – that’s about the thickness of a dime held at arm’s length! This means the two planets and their moons will be visible in the same field of view through binoculars or a small telescope. In fact, Saturn will appear as close to Jupiter as some of Jupiter’s moons.”
Several available smartphone apps can be used to identify the stars and planets in the night sky.
The 21st will be the closest Jupiter and Saturn have appeared since March 4, 1226. There was a closer conjunction of the planets some 400 years ago, but that event was not visible to many of us here on Earth, according to Space.com.
Great conjunctions happen on average every 19.6 years. NASA says after this month’s event, you’ll have to hang in there until 2080 to catch the next great conjunction of similar proximity
