Well, it’s the end of the year and Neil deGrasse Tyson has some thoughts. On our last StarTalk Explainer of 2020, Neil and comic co-host Chuck Nice look back on the year and explore some science you might not know that surrounds the holiday season.

Neill reflects back on The Great Conjunction, the “meeting” of Jupiter and Saturn in the night sky. We discuss why, in the northern hemisphere, this time of year has the shortest days. Then, Neil tells us why New Year’s Eve is a “time-zone charade”.

Find out why we have to move the South Pole every year on New Year’s. Neil also tells us why he’s upset about the inaccurate depictions of Santa’s workshop. All that, plus, Neil reminds us to have a Merry Perihelion!
