The December edition of Southern Skywatch is now up.  This month features still more nice  planetary action . Unfortunately, most of it is in the early morning with Venus, Mars and Jupiter forming a line in the morning sky with the crescent Moon joining them.

Jupiter climbs higher in the morning sky and has close encounters with the crescent Moon.

Mars is visible in the early morning sky and has close encounters with SPica and the crescent Moon.

Saturn returns to the morning sky at the end of the month.

Venus is prominent in the morning twilight and is close to the crescent Moon on the 8th. It forms a line with Mars and Jupiter.

Mercury eturns to the evening sky late in the month.
