Future of Tonight's Sky: As you can tell updates lately have been scarce to none, right now I am debating on whether or not I should continue updating this site. I had a peak of visitors on December 1st (probably due to the high number of those google searching "december 1 conjunction") and ever since then I have been going down. So right now my plan is to (in January sometime) purchase some web hosting, and make Tonights Sky, my photography website, since most of my photography will include either astronomy, weather, or other atmospheric phenomena, I find the name fitting (or at least good enough for now) for my photography.
As of right now, I think I will keep Tonights Sky (latest events) on the frontpage, or have a link on the front page to the events. So keep checking this site, because with hosting and multiple webpages, I will be able to offer more features, as well as an archive of all the photography accounts of mine (which I hope to include some storm chasing in Nebraska!)
Thanks to those of you that have been checking this regularly (you are the reason I keep working on this) More updates on the NEWtonightssky.org in January, for now Ill keep posting the Latest Night Sky Events here.
Events in December: Expect aurora activity to increase during the days of December 22-25th, then quiet during the days of the 26th- 30th increased levels for the 31st through the 2nd of January.
December 31st: Another great planetary conjunction to end the month, after starting the month with the great Venus, Jupiter and moon conjunction. This time expect Jupiter and Mercury to low on the Horizon new years eve after sunset, as well as the Crescent moon and venus higher in the sky.
Ursid Meteor shower: Peaks tonight and Tommorow night, expect peak rates between 10-30 MPH
