Plan ahead now for an awesome year of meteor-watching. Good news! In 2018, the year’s 2 most reliable showers – August Perseids and December Geminids – happen with little to no interference from the moon.
The moon is pointing toward Mercury and Saturn on the mornings of January 13 and 14, 2018. Afterwards, Mercury will fall toward the sunrise day by day, while Saturn will climb upward, away from the glare of daybreak.
