Watching the Skies with Brad Klein: November 20-27 - the planets of November
BETHLEHEM, Pa. — Brad Klein reviews the week’s astronomical highlights with Bethlehem’s "Backyard Astronomy Guy," Marty McGuire.
This week they discuss the three planets visible in the November sky.
Saturn is easy to pick out, since it’s quite close to the first quarter moon tonight. Just after sunset, Saturn is close to the moon in the southern sky.
Jupiter stays above the horizon all night long, rising in the East and Setting in the west. Jupiter is visible all night long ‘moving’ east to west.
And Venus, the morning star, is for early risers. It’s visible just before dawn in the eastern Sky.
