Night Sky Tour of Nov 4 - 11, 2011

This week’s Sky Tour shows Mercury & Venus in the west passing up Antares. Jupiter is in the east at sunset and the Moon conjoins Jupiter this week. Mars rises after midnight and approaches Regulus. Saturn rises before dawn near Spica.

Plus I talk about the story of the Clash of the Titans that plays out in the sky every night in the northern hemisphere and a few fixed stars associated with the stellar cast of constellations. This is always a favorite around those autumn bon fires.
