On May 7, I heard Phlash Phelps on Sirius Sixties on 6 talk about Venus, Jupiter, and the crescent moon forming a smiley face in the night sky. I have found Phlash to normally be correct when he shares tidbits of information with us so I was intrigued.
I was looking for a picture to see what this smiley face might look like.
Were the heavens giving a pandemic weary Earth a reason to look up and smile back?
It’s claimed that on May 16, 2020, Venus, Jupiter and a crescent Moon will align and look like a smiling face looking down on us, that it’s a “quite a rare astronomical phenomenon” and that it’s called an occultation.
According to James Carter at Forbes, the planets are in different parts of the sky and will not be a position to form the predicted smiley face. So this is fake news.
