Astronomical icons decorate the eastern sky
Night comes early now, and it’ll come even earlier after daylight-saving time ends Sunday. But the most interesting part of November’s starry sky doesn’t wheel up into view until somewhat later. Go out about two hours after nightfall (meaning 8:30 tonight, 7:30 Sunday and after), and you’ll spot big, bright Jupiter glaring low in the east. It’s 35 light-minutes from Earth, almost as close as it gets all year.
