From The Washington Post:
Each morning between now and Dec. 10, watch Saturn and Venus rapidly appear to grow apart. Before dawn Dec. 10, the waning crescent moon picks Saturn as a dance partner. And before dawn Dec. 11, the vivacious Venus slow dances with the old, skinny moon.Meteors will catch sky-gazing attention, according to the International Meteor Organization. The Geminid meteors, seen from Dec. 4-17, peak on the night of Dec. 13-14, with possibly up to 120 meteors per hour at its best. How do you watch? Just look up. These shooting stars appear to emanate from the constellation Gemini. With no moon to worry about, watch late in the evening and into the morning hours.
