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.
