The evening sky facing east in Adelaide on November 5 at 5:47 am ACDST showing Venus, Saturn and the crescent Moon close together. (similar views will be seen from other cities at the equivalent local time eg 5:47 am AEDST Adelaide).
The November edition of Southern Skywatch is now up and the planetary action continues. Mercury and Saturn return to the evening and morning skies respectively. Venus enters the morning sky as well. Venus is an obvious crescent in small telescopes and strong binoculars. Mercury and Mars have some close encounters.
Jupiter is past opposition, but it is still a good time to break out the telescopes to observe this world and its Moons.
Jupiter is easily visible in the late evening sky and is within binocular range of Uranus .
Comet 103P/Hartley is visible in southern skies in binoculars. The variable stars Mira and Algol are good to watch this month.
