Highlights of the North Autumn Sky
Illustration Credit & Copyright:

Explanation: What can you see [3] in the night sky this season? The featured
graphic gives a few highlights for Earth's northern hemisphere. Viewed as a
clock face centered at the bottom, early (northern) autumn sky events fan out
toward the left, while late autumn events are projected toward the right.
Objects relatively close to Earth [4] are illustrated, in general, as nearer
to the cartoon figure with the telescope at the bottom center -- although
almost everything pictured can be seen without a telescope [5] . As happens
during any season, constellations [6] appear the same year to year, and, as
usual, the Leonids meteor shower [7] will peak in mid-November. Also as
usual, the International Space Station [8] (ISS) can be seen, at times, [9]
as a bright spot drifting across the sky [10] after sunset. Planets visible
after sunset this autumn include Jupiter and Mars [11] , and during late
autumn, Saturn [12] .
