Nasa's skywatching tips for December 2023 — rare asteroids and a meteor shower

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) has shared tips for what stargazers should look out for during December, including the peak of the Geminid meteor shower.

Moreover, there will also be several times during which the moon will be visible near various planets, and a rare opportunity to see an asteroid pass by Earth.
 
Met this chap on a trip recently, and he does some pretty amazing astromony photography. He likes to chase eclipses around the world
