December 2018 Sky Report: A Comet for Christmas

(By Jim Feiste)

There is much for amateur astronomers to celebrate this month! Whether you celebrate Hanukah (Dec 2- 10), the Winter Solstice (December 21), Christmas (Dec 25), Kwanza (Dec 26-Jan 1), or other traditions; the night-sky this December offers many gifts. The sky will be beautifully clear and dark early in the month. Comet 46P will be easily visible throughout the night all month long. Join me this month as we hitch a ride on a comet to experience the wonders of the December skies!  More...
