December Night Sky: The constellation of Orion is the stand-out feature of our long December nights which are bracketed by the two brightest
planets – Venus as a brilliant evening star, and Jupiter in the pre-dawn. Yet another supermoon coincides with the peak of the Geminids meteor shower
that runs the 8th to the 17th. Fortunately, a good proportion are bright and the intense moonlight won't hide them all. The young earthlit Moon stands above
Venus on the 3rd and close to dimming Mars on the 5th. Full moon the 14th, Winter Solstice the 21st, New Moon the 29th.
