Low but Bright Sun Lights up Lake

The sun hasn't been overhead for months now and as you can see above, at mid-day the tilt of the earth makes the sun appear more south than west and remains very "low in the sky." Nevertheless, it shines very brightly today and at 53°we are very grateful for it.

Continuing with our fascination with the sky, a dazzling display is about to unfold in the night sky as one of the most reliable meteor showers of the entire year approaches its peak. Every year, skywatchers around the globe circle Dec. 13 on their calendars, the night that the Geminid meteor shower reaches its climax, although the celestial light show is best seen from a spot north of the equator.
