Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day shows some transients. Several Geminids flash through the constellation of Taurus. At a slightly more leisurely pace, Comet 46P/Wirtanen is also moving through the field of view. Or course, if we move the scale up further, the stars visible here are also transient: they are moving and they are aging.
