      BRIGHT PLANETS.... When the sun goes down on Sunday, Dec. 11th, you've got
      to go outside and look. In the south, Venus is shining at its maximum
      brightness for all of 2005. (Through a telescope, Venus appears to be a
      tiny crescent--very pretty.) And in the east, Mars and the Moon are having
      a close encounter. Don't miss it!

      ...AND METEORS: The Geminid meteor shower peaks on Dec. 13th and 14th.
      Unfortunately, the glaring Moon will spoil the show, wiping out all but
      the brightest Geminids. There is, however, a single hour when the
      Geminids might be visible in full force. Visit http://spaceweather.com
      for details.

      ICY BONUS: With a cold wave sweeping across the USA, filling the air with
      ice and snow, people are seeing some unusual things in the sky. During
      the week ahead we'll show you some of them, beginning with false auroras
      and diamond dust sundogs. Check every day for a new picture.
