There are two meteor showers to look out for this month, the Geminids peak on the 13th, often this is the best shower of the year, with a zenithal hourly rate of 120. With a new moon on the 11th conditions couldn’t be better, fingers crossed for clear skies! The radiant can be found close to Castor, in the Gemini constellation.

On the 22nd of the month, the Ursid meteors make their appearance, but with a waxing gibbous moon, conditions are certainly not the best, but still worth a look.

Towards the end of the month, Saturn will be visible in the southeast, in the early morning sky.
