"Tonight's Sky: December 2012" provides excellent five minute presentation for amateur stargazers! You Tube caption describes show: "Backyard stargazers get a monthly guide to the northern hemisphere's skywatching events with 'Tonight's Sky.' In December, look for open star cluster M34 and keep your eyes open for the Geminid meteor shower. 'Tonight's Sky' is produced by HubbleSite.org, online home of the Hubble Space Telescope. This is a recurring show, and you can find more episodes — and other astronomy videos — at HubbleSite.org." You can explore galazy, by simply, stepping outside after dark to gaze skyward from your own backyard!
