The December edition of Southern Skywatch is now up.

There's a bit of planetary action this month with  Venus, Jupiter and Mars meeting the Moon.

Mars climbs higher to the morning sky and is near the crescent Moon on the 26th.  Jupiter climbs higher still and is also near the Moon on the19th.

Mercury is lost in the twilight.

 Saturn returns to the morning sky and is close to the Moon on the 29th.

The Geminid meteor shower is best on the morning of the 14th, and some decent meteors should be seen.
