As I’ve said in my previous’ posts, something is aligning in the stars.
Between October 20th – 22th the sky set to peak has Orionids Meteor Shower began. On November and December 3rd, 2017, The Super Moon occurred.
Tonight and just before dawn tomorrow, The Geminid Meteor shower is set to peak just around 9 pm tonight, it is best to view just after midnight. The Geminid is a meteor shower that is approx. 200 years old. It’s been known as the annual December light show since 1892. They occur when the Earth passes through a stream of dust and debris in space left behind by a comet or asteroid. For more info and visualization on the Geminid Meteor Shower you can view the video on SPACE.com
It was -15ºc this morning when I was heading to work, So, I can’t imagine how cold it will be tonight until dawn tomorrow. So if you are planning to watch the meteor shower be sure to bundle up, dress warm, and grab yourself and sip on some tee! If you don’t even wanna bother going out to watch you can view it live here provided by of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center around 6 p.m. EST

The meteors will radiate from the constellation Gemini, which is between the Taurus and Cancer constellation. Gemini is easy to spot and in order to find Gemini, look for the bright constellation Orion as Gemini is just over Orions right side.
You guys wouldn’t wanna miss this!

Today is the last day of November and December 1st is tomorrow. The Super Moon is set to peak on Sunday, December 3rd. If u haven’t noticed the moon already looking larger and brighter. During the colder seasons the moon is referred to as the “Cold Moon“. Prepare for the cold Winter break and holidays as they’re also amongst us.
The moon is to rise at 3:11 pm and set at 3:30 am.
It is a Waxing Gibbous – Any moon that appears to be more lighted but less than full.
Moon is in Aries today, as for yesterday also.
Aries Moon Qualities:
- Self focused
- Risk taking
- Hot tempered
Each month When the moon is in Aries it spends 2 and a half days in the sign. You should feel more upbeat and energetic, with the ability to get a lot of things done. The key accomplishment to getting things done during or under the Aries moon is to pace yourself.
Something beautiful is aligning in the stars, and it is also Scorpio SZN!
Between October 20th – 22th the sky set to peak has Orionids Meteor Shower began. I don’t know for sure whether or not I had witnessed it, but I got home after a late night and just sat outside looking up with bright shining stars scattered literally…. every where, and let my tell you it was a way different night sky than usual.
November 3rd, 2017, The Super Moon occurred. It happens when the full moon of any month orbits closest to Earth which is called “Perigee“. So if you find yourself thinking the full moon appears a bit bigger and brighter, that is why.
The Super Moon last year On November 14th, 2016, was the closest to earth since January 1948. The next Super Moon is set to fall on December 3rd, 2017. Which will appear to be up to 14% bigger and 30% brighter than normal.
It is said in this article by website, Time and Date. The next time we will see a Super Moon closer than last year’s Super Moon is November 25, 2034. (17 more years to go!)
I am very keen into Astronomy, and a huge Astrologer. But whether you believe in astrology and in the stars or not, you cannot deny the beautiful science the universe has to show/offer to us.
