Centaurs and Close Encounters
"There was a Chiron transit at the end of 1977, when the movie was released and Chiron was discovered, that didn't quite reach the Moon, but stopped for retrogradation at 5,47 Taurus. This is, however, the midpoint of the 2 degree conjunction, and it could still be considered activating the conjunction. On the night of the release, November 16th, transiting Venus in 8,34 Scorpio and Mars in 7,38 Leo were closing on Saturn, the axis of the t-cross configuration.
