Description: What to look out, and up, for in November.

Ralph, Paul & Jen pick their highlights for this month’s skies; starting with the solar system objects on offer to observers and imagers:

  • A last look at Saturn for 2017 in the early evening sky
  • A very impressive Jupiter/Venus conjunction on the 13th of November
  • The Taurid meteor showers peaking on the 5th and 21st November and the Leonids on the 18th November
  • Comet 2017 O1 ASASSN1 for binocular and telescope observers

Next up, we take a deep sky pick from our list of favourites for this time of year:

  • Ralph – Messier 42, the Orion Nebula in the constellation Orion
  • Jen  – Messier 13, The Great Globular Cluster in Hercules
  • Paul – NCG 404, Mirach’s Ghost in the constellation Andromeda

And we finish this sky guide with November’s moon phases.
