Hot Tub Astronomy for December

December 17, 2013

Full moon with crowThe December night sky holds visual wonders-all the better seen from your Hot Spring Spa.

There’s still time to catch the Geminids meteor shower tonight.  Hopefully, the moon will be out of the way and peak activity will be after midnight.  If the sky is clear, you many be able to witness as many as 100 meteors an hour!  Thanks To Rodney Ash a member of the Seattle Astronomical Society writing in the Seattle Times for this tip.

Click the link for more on what to watch for in December while hot tub soaking.  The Seattle Astronomical Society is a terrific organization that sponsors monthly star gazing parties and information about the stars. A pair of binoculars 7- or 10-x-50s or a small telescope would make a great Christmas present for night sky viewing from the hot tub.

Don’t miss the full moon tonight, December 17th from your hot tub. Called the Full Cold Moon by American Indians, this moon is the smallest of the full moons. Small or not, it’s always a pleasure to soak under a full moon.

RES EST SERVA VOLUPTAS. Pleasure is serious business.
