What's Up: December 2022 Skywatching Tips from NASA

What are some skywatching highlights in December 2022? The Moon sweeps past Jupiter twice this month, and actually covers Mars completely, in an event called an occultation, on Dec. 7. The event is visible across the U.S., except for the Southeast and East Coast, where the Moon will graze closely past Mars. And throughout the month, you can find Pegasus, the winged stallion, high overhead in the south. 0:00 Intro 0:11 Moon & planet highlights 0:38 Occultation: Mars disappears 1:54 The constellation Pegasus 3:12 December Moon phases Additional information about topics covered in this episode of What's Up, along with still images from the video, and the video transcript, are available at https://solarsystem.nasa.gov/skywatching/home.
