November Sky Watch Report with Mr. Lutken

Happy November, Eagles! Retired faculty member and administrator Mr. Lutken offers guidance on what to expect in Mother Nature this month.

Made it to Halloween again in spite of everything!! It's a "cross quarter day," the halfway point from the Equinox in September to the Solstice in December ... and leaves are beginning to turn!

Evening Skies/Great Planets: Venus is bright in the west, with  Jupiter and Saturn following

Winter stars begin to rise around nine and the constellation Cassiopeia (which looks like a W) is right overhead this time of year.

Full Moon is on the 18th/19th. Partial lunar eclipse early a.m of the 19th.

Morning skies: Orion and company are high in the southwest and the Big Dipper is rising in the north east.

Quarry/Outdoors: Monarchs are still fluttering through, but they'll all head south soon. This month the trees will replace their orange with fall colors of their own. 

Ducks are arriving, and November is a great time to watch for migrating hawks. Photo is of an Osprey, sometimes called a Fish Hawk. He just caught his lunch!  You might see them around area rivers and lakes.   

There's something to wonder about everyday, when you get outdoors and look around!
