Next week, the big event will be the Leonid meteor shower. So, this is an excellent time to practice finding the Leo constellation, as the moon is rising with it over the eastern horizon around midnight.
Mercury, the little messenger planet, is popping over the horizon this week. You have to get up pretty early in the morning, but you’ll spot Venus and Mercury hanging out together on the eastern horizon about an hour before sunrise.
Orion the Hunter is here to guide you through winter. The constellation is the most apparent in November and December in the southern sky. It’s one of the easiest to identify, thanks to the “belt” cluster of three bright stars. Find it in the southern sky around 11 pm.
The North Taurid meteor shower peaks tonight around midnight. With the waning crescent moon, you stand a good chance of seeing some shooting stars. The fireball’s origin point is in Taurus, directly above Orion.
Jupiter and Saturn are reasonably visible tonight and hanging out so.close together. Look to the southwest after sunset, and you’ll see them on their path down to the horizon. If you have a telescope, swing it due east, Uranus is visible next to the Aries constellation. It will cut a path across the sky throughout the night, setting close to dawn.
