What's up for November 2016?
Venus at sunset, Jupiter at dawn, your last evening glimpse of Saturn until spring, and more meteors!
Through November 3, catch glimpses of a gibbous Venus, a crescent moon and ringed Saturn in the southwest sky just after sunset
Wake up before sunrise every day this month to see Jupiter just above Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo, shining in the east-southeast sky. Just before dawn on November 23-24, see the waning crescent moon just above Jupiter.
This month, just like last month, there will be three meteor showers–the Northern Tuarids, the Leonids and the November Orionids.
