Astro Advent 2019 – Days 13 to 24
A mysterious purple arc across the sky, a shower of meteors, a rare transit, a Christmas comet – and more – complete the astro countdown to Christmas. Here are the days from mid-Advent to Christmas Eve on the Bellaonline Astronomy Forum.
*Happy New Year*
Greetings and good wishes for you for 2020. But do you know when the New Year begins?
Imagine midnight on December 31 – fireworks, friendship and celebration greet a new year. But only if you follow the Gregorian calendar. In the past, a year often didn't start on January 1, and for nearly two billion people it still doesn't. So when does a new year begin?
