And the Planets!

So remember in The Dark Crystal when the three suns lined up in the crystal chamber for the great conjunction?




You know, when the Skeksis start chanting “we will live forever,” then Fizzgig gets thrown in the pit.  Kira gets stabbed, and a beam of light shines down on the crystal like all the magics a great conjunction can produce, hyperfocused into one tiny point light years across space and time. Jen slams the shard into the crystal, and the whole world is saved. Yeah, that’s not going to happen with this planetary alignment, but it’ll be cool to see it anyway.
