This Month’s Skysuzie_venus_fall

As we head into the month of November, the lovely planet Saturn will continue to sink lower in the southwestern sky each night. But Mars continues to dazzle in the south, southwestern sky (Illustration 1)! Also, we will enjoy the Leonid Meteor Shower which peaks on November 17th! However, the First Quarter Moon will fade the fainter meteors.

Once we have changed back our clocks to Eastern Standard Time, it will be great to go outside and enjoy an evening of stargazing right after dinner!  The evenings are getting colder, so we will need to put on our winter coats, gloves, hats and maybe boots.

We will begin our hike at 7:00 pm. Grab your Starry Trail map & binoculars and let’s go!

Here’s what you’ll need to start exploring tonight’s sky:
