An Astronomical Christmas: Merry Christmas!

Although posts have been far and few between this December, Astronomical Events Calendar would like to wish a a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year. Even the universe wishes you a Merry Christmas, as these are some of our favorites:


Discovered Christmas Day 2010, this gamma ray burst is one of it's kind. It is two stars, with one neutron star intermixed with its companion. A few of these were from APOD, in the past years of Christmas. Each are a beautiful addition.

What about the Christmas Star? Although I wasn't able to publish this article as I liked to, EarthSky did a nice job. Again, Have a Merry Christmas!!
