Keep Looking Up for Meteors and Darkening Moons

Next week, as early as the night of the 13th, the Geminid meteor shower returns.  A week later, and just in time for the longest night of the year, a total lunar eclipse is visible from four continents and the only total lunar eclipse for 2010.

Saturn and Venus are visible in the early morning hours (before dawn), and Saturn’s rings have returned from a two year hiatus hiding on edge.

I just hope the clouds stay far far away.
