As we move into the late fall, the weather gets more cloudy and the temperatures less forgiving. For both of these reasons, we will not be doing a star party this November (best night would've been Nov 4), and it will be April or May until we start up again...
...do watch out for any open houses, and we are going to be hosting meetings of the Northern Skies Observers astronomy club in the very near future so as to make plans for the coming year!
A couple of things to watch for:
1) On November 14, the moon will be full and because it will be closer to the earth than usual - thus, it will be slightly larger in the sky than usual!
2) Do go to Skymaps.com (button below takes you there) and download the November sky map, which includes lists of many objects to observe!
And, as Brad says, "Clear Skies!" (WV)
