The Ascension was when Jesus Christ rose up to Heaven at the end of His ministry on Earth, literally rising upwards from the ground and disappearing from sight among the clouds. This was the last time Jesus was seen by anyone on Earth, visions notwithstanding, and is recounted at the start of the book of Acts (Acts 1:9).

Christians celebrate the Ascension each year on the Thursday exactly forty days after Easter Sunday (counting inclusively).
