It might be early yet, but not to early to mark your calendars for a couple of great sky shows coming up. The first is the Geminid meteor shower, which peaks on the 13th and 14th. How can you not want to see a meteor shower that is the favorite of NASA astronomer Bill Cooke, who says "The Geminids are my favorite, because they defy explanation." Keep the magic in science, Bill! This meteor shower can be seen from almost everywhere on the planet...so look up and feel the wonder!
Even though the star map from above is from 2004, it doesn't matter, because "The Geminids are so named because if you traced all the meteor trails backward, they would meet within the boundaries of the constellation Gemini." from Astronomy Magazine

I was going to add a story here about a boat, but I think I'll save it for another time, another cup of tea.
