Description: What to look out, and up, for in December.

Ralph, Paul & Jen pick their highlights for this month’s skies; starting with the solar system objects on offer to observers and imagers:

  • The Geminid meteor showers peaking on 13/14th December
  • Uranus sitting in the constellation Pisces
  • Mars & Jupiter lunar conjunctions

Next up, we take a deep sky pick from our list of favourites for this time of year.

  • Ralph – A binary star, a plaetary nebula and 4 open clusters in Gemini
  • Jen – The Pleiades open cluster in Taurus
  • Paul – The Crab Nebula supernova remnant also in Taurus

And we finish this sky guide with December’s moon phases.

Bio: A podcast beamed direct from an underground bunker on Mars to promote science, space and astronomy (and enslave Earth if all goes well).
