Are more solar flares and coronal mass ejections in our future. Experts say yes, with certainty. How strong and when is a little more cloudy.

Imagine the infrastructure of Port au Prince, a population density about a third greater than New York City*, the subsidence problems of New Orleans and a landscape like the Netherlands.

The Geminids, as they always do, appear to originate from the constellation Gemini, but originate instead from the object 3200 Phaethon — an asteroid, not a comet. Best viewing in the U.S. will be to the east shortly after midnight and, of course, try to be as far away from any light pollution as possible. Don’t worry if you can’t view tonight as the show will go on, though lesser in intensity, through the 19th.

Like last night, here’s what’s happening tonight: The nearly full moon will be in penumbral eclipse. The red giant star Aldebaran and Jupiter will be visible to the moon’s upper right. Additionally, Jupiter’s Galilean moons may be visible. Want more? The conjunction of Venus and Saturn will be visible, but you’ll have to wait till tomorrow morning to view. And if that’s still not enough, there’s an opportunity to view the International Space Station as it slips quickly across the sky.
