🔭 What's up this week:
Jupiter shines bright in the evening southern sky (or in the north if you’re in the southern hemisphere), with yellowish Saturn farther to the west. Mars is reddish and extremely bright, located within the winter hexagon: six bright stars that form a hexagon over a big part of the eastern sky, including Rigel, Aldebaran, Capella, Pollux, Procyon, and Sirius, the brightest star in the sky. You can see a diagram of the winter hexagon in our guide to November’s night skies.
Night Sky Toolkits
When you think about how the Moon looks in the night sky, you might never have considered that it looks different to people in other parts of the world. But really, perspective is all relative.
