SKY GUY VIEWING ALERT 12/2-4 Sunset Planets & Moon

Hey Space Placers!

Be sure to get outside on Dec 2-4 after sunset and watch the crescent Moon approach Venus on 12/2 & 3 and then Mars on 12/4.

As an added bonus Mercury is very low on the horizon as well.



I hope to get pics art sea to share but the weather has to improve!

Whoa...TINIEST ASTEROID EVER DISCOVERED

Hey Space Placers!

At sea off the coast of Thailand on Azamara Journey. We have had some heavy weather so no sky pics yet.

Astronomers have discovered an asteroid that is ONLY 6 feet across! That is quite a find. Read all about it here.

The Sky For A Few Nights

Hey Space Placers!

As it gets darker earlier take the time to see brilliant Venus in the SW after sunset. Mars is to the left of Venus and a dimming ember of itself from back in May when it was closest to the Earth.

The bright Summer Triangle is setting in the West and the Great Square Pegasus flies high overhead while Orion rises in the East with Sirius.

I hope to get some nice pics at sea and sharing them with you.
