Happy New Years! The Quadrantid Meteor Shower will erupt soon to celebrate 2023. A beautiful three way conjunction later this month makes a great astrophotography opportunity. Mars also exits Retrograde – an event attached to both ancient and modern folklore.
The upcoming cold nights makes January one of the best months for viewing constellations, especially the Winter Triangle Asterism. An asterism is a recognizable pattern of stars which is not a constellation. The Winter Triangle is an asterism viewable during the winter months that creates a triangle between the following stars:
Siruis, of Canis Major, the brightest star in the night sky
Betelgeuse, of Orion, the Hunter
Procyon, of Canis Minor, the Little Dog
In the middle of the Winter Triangle is the constellation Monoceros, the Unicorn.
It’s the New Year’s! Time to grab a new calendar!
