December’s Audio Guide to the Heavens

Use an MP3 player to listen to's Sky Tour Podcasts.
S&T: Lauren Darby
Sure, it gets cold in December. But this month is one of the best times all year to go stargazing. The nights are long, and the sky is usually free of the haze and muck that come during the dog days of summer.

And December also features the Geminid meteor shower, which rivals the Perseids as the year's most impressive shower and doesn't force you to stay up all night to see the show!

There's no better way to introduce yourself to the emerging stars of winter than to download this podcast to your MP3 player. Go outside and let Sky & Telescope's executive editor, Kelly Beatty, show you where to look. Follow along as he leads you to mighty Orion, the Hunter, and many other stellar attractions.

Clear skies, and happy hunting!

    It’s December in NJ and the air is not clear at all. Haze is reported on many days and lines of barium and aluminum span the skies which then precipitate to cause this haze.

    The clear skies of December and winter are gone forever.
