: By Gerry DyckSometimes I feel that my thirty years of variable star observing have been about as variable as the variable stars themselves. Next month I will send in my 300th consecutive monthly report to the AAVSO. Today I look back at highlights, lowlights, trends and changes in my astronomical endeavors.
: By Dave HuestisOn the night of December 13-14 stargazers would normally be
preparing themselves for a cold night of observing the most
consistent and reliable of all meteor showers, the Geminids.
Unfortunately the bright Full Moon (on the 12th) will prevent all
but the brightest of these shooting stars from being seen.
