Planets Shining in November

For anyone that is interested in looking at the planets in the night sky this coming month there is an article with descriptions of when and where to look to see the different planets in our solar system. The article mentions Venus, Mercury, Jupiter Mars, and even Saturn. You will find Venus and Mercury on the southern horizon and as the month progresses you will see the planets close together and then the distance will begin to increase. Jupiter will be found high in the eastern sky outshining other stars because of it's glow we learned about today in class. If you're looking to see Mars or Saturn you'll have to venture out early in the morning. If you go planet-gazing make sure to bring your binoculars!!

I have yet to do my observing, and I'm hoping that there are clear skies soon so that I can go out and check out some of these planets, especially Jupiter!
