Eyes on the Sky, 12/9/2013

Published on Dec 8, 2013 The Hyades and Pleiades are well-known open clusters to see in Taurus, but a few asterisms that are fun to find are Ally's Braid and Davis's Dog. Say what? Check out this week's look at Taurus to learn where you can find these two groupings of stars, along with an easy way to find the wide binocular double star Kappa Tauri. Plus, the Lunar X is visible on Monday for the Americas, the Geminid meteors peak on Friday into Saturday morning, and then the Moon treks right through Taurus on Sunday, occulting stars left and right as it blasts through the Bull.

They are always there, ALWAYS there, out in space. They’re as natural a part of our world as the planets, clouds and kittens. Astronomers who observe the sky don’t get excited about comets because there are so many of the damned things! It’s like a birdspotter getting excited about blackbirds, or thrushes.
