Astro Bob's Backyard Astronomy: Full Moon for the Old Year, Meteor Shower for the New Year
With the omnipresent clouds, the full moon has managed to sneak up on us. Tonight is the full moon for the month of December. "It'll be a very brilliant full moon way up there in the constellation of Gemini," says Bob King. "It's called the full Cold Moon." Here's hoping for a break in the clouds.
The new year brings promise of another meteor shower. The Quadrantids will peak for a mere 6 hours on the morning of January 4th. "The shower will radiate from a point below the handle of the big dipper." Also look for Mercury to be on display as 2024 comes our way.
You can hear Astro Bob's Backyard Astronomy every other Tuesday at 8:20am on Northland Morning.
