November is sometimes called “the month of the Pleiades,” since the star cluster is visible all night long for observers in the Northern hemisphere. From a dark sky site, M45 is easy to see with the unaided eye and resembles a small “teaspoon” pattern in the sky.
Taurids Meteor Shower
On the night of November 5, the Taurids Meteor Shower will peak and with an early setting moon, there should be desirable dark skies for viewing. Look near the constellation Taurus, but be aware that meteors can appear anywhere in the sky.
The next night, November 6, will be the best time to observe the smallest and innermost planet in the Solar System as it will be at its greatest eastern elongation. It’ll be low in the western sky shortly after sunset.
