astronomical events in December

People look east, the time is near . . .

Look Up! Look Waaaaay Up!  During the month of December the sky will hold a veritable feast for the eyes! With the holidays coming and the calendar year soon ending, it seems that the winter sky has saved the best for last.

The annual Geminids meteor shower will be at its peak of activity on December 14 with some 120 meteors flying across the night sky each hour.
