Welcome to Starry Trails !
                Written by Suzie Dills - Backyard Astronomy !


On December 21st, we celebrate the Winter Solstice or the first day of winter here in the Northern Hemisphere. Although this begins the winter season, when we step out on a clear night, the brightest stars of the year put on a dazzling show for us! As we head into late December, we will have the brilliant planets, Venus & Jupiter, join the star show! Look for Venus low in the southwest and Jupiter low in the east after sunset.

Another great thing about winter is the sun sets early. We can start our hike much earlier. We need to put on
our winter coats, hats, gloves, and boots. Grab your Starry Trail map and binoculars and letís enjoy!
