Do you like stargazing?  Are you an amateur astronomer?  If so, then this December will be your month as nature stages two spectacular sky shows.  First on tap will be the Geminid Meteor Shower next week, with the peak days being Monday and Tuesday, when some scientists are estimating you will be able to see between 60 and 100 shooting stars per hour, and quite possibly being the best meteor show in 100 years, cloud cover permitting.  About a week later, on December 20, to be exact, most of the world will be able to see the best total lunar eclipse until April 2014.  On the east coast. it will start at 12:29 AM on the 21st, but west coast residents will begin seeing it at 9:29 PM of the 20th.  It will get a slow start, becoming finally noticeable about 45 minutes into the event, and will last about 72 minutes.  The last widely visible lunar eclipse was in 2008 (see photo).
