Saturday Night Stargazing at Jefferson Township Park every clear Saturday night starting 1 hour after sunset and

November Night Sky: Saturn is still bright at nightfall but low in the South West. Neptune is in the South, constellation Aquarius,
and Uranus in the South East, constellation Pisces. You will need a small telescope and good finder charts or planetarium app. to
find. Jupiter is rounding the Sun, but it's more the Earth rounding the Sun, that brings Jupiter visible in the morning twilight. On the
morning of the 8th, Jupiter is below left of Venus, and on the morning of the 13th the two are so close together they will fit in a
telescope field of 100X (power), along with Jupiter's moons. Very swift Leonids meteors, many leaving bright trains in their wake,
arrive between the 15th and 20th and are most numerous near the shower's peak, predicted for the 17th. 10-15 per hour.
Full Beaver Moon: 4th, New Moon 18th.
