The Nighttime Sky for November - December, 2019:
Jupiter and Saturn are now poised to leave the evening sky shining low in the SW during the evenings in November and fading away in December. However, Venus is slowly rising higher and higher in the WSW sky and will be shining brightly during December as sometimes referred to as the "Evening Star". Mars is still low in the eastern morning sky but is slowly rising earlier by about a minute each day and by the beginning of December will be rising around 4:30 am as a dim ruddy red object.

The Pleiades, aka, the 7 sisters is high in the NE in the mid evening, always a sign of the cooler months on the way. Following them is mighty Orion which is now beginning to enter the nighttime arena rising shortly before midnight. Within this region can be found the rosette nebula and the horsehead nebula. A dim patch of a fuzzy looking star high in the ENE around 8 pm is the Andromeda Galaxy (M31) which when viewed through a telescope shows the vastness of this large galactic neighbor which contains about 1 trillion stars. following in the sky is another galactic neighbor, the Triangulum galaxy (M33) which shows a classic spiral shape. This galaxy contains only about 40 billion stars (as compared to about 200 billion in our own Milky Way galaxy) Other objects to view are the crab nebula, ring nebula There are so many objects awaiting for us to view in a sky near you.
