Four celestial occurrences are happening on Wednesday, making it a “magical” night for astronomers.
The year’s earliest sunset, Mars’ opposition, and a rare occurrence in which the December full moon, known as the “cold moon,” briefly eclipses Mars, all mark the conclusion of the day.
The sun will set on Wednesday just before 4:45 p.m. EST, and twilight will cease at 5:49 p.m. EST. Even though it will usher in early darkness, it will open the door to a spectacular night of stargazing.
Viewers will be able to see Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars, the last of the planets, in addition to the full moon.
