Celestial Omens?

 Apparently, due to an astronomical phenomenon called a conjunction, people in India and Australia saw a smiley face in the sky last night, while those in North America and Europe saw what looked like a frown. 

Pretty neat, huh? 

Other facts:

A conjunction occurs when two planets and a moon cluster together. The planets involved last night were Jupiter and Venus.

On a timely festive note, a conjunction in 2 BC may be behind the star of Bethlehem story in the Bible.

The next time this phenomenon will be visible is in 2052. (source)
