NOVEMBER SKY EVENTS

Venus and Saturn are gone. Mars is dim. But the giant planet Jupiter is brightening and rises around 11:00 P.M. in the middle of the month. That is probably past your bedtime! Also at midmonth, Orion rises by 9:00 P.M., with the Dog Star up an hour later, introducing the brilliant stars of the cold season. The excellent Leonid meteor shower starts late on November 16 and continues through the wee hours of the 17th. The Leonids are one of the year’s best meteor shows and usually produce about 15 “shooting stars” per hour when viewed from a dark location. The meteors may appear anywhere in the sky!
