Mars is Moving, Leftover Leonids, a Full Frost Moon, and November’s Brightest’s Lights!

(Above: Leonids Meteor Shower. To see the most meteors, find a wide-open dark location, preferably away from light polluted skies, and just look up with your unaided eyes.)
(Above: Selected major features visible on the full moon, and the numbered Apollo landing sites. Image by Michael Watson of Toronto.)
(Above: Mercury will be very difficult to see after sunset this week, as shown here at 5:30 pm local time on November 18. Saturn, at upper left, will continue to be visible after full darkness arrives.)
(Above: The sky is shown here for November 23, 2018 at 6 pm local time. Bright, reddish Mars has been travelling eastward towards dim Neptune in Aquarius. Uranus is farther to the east in Pisces. All three planets will be well-placed for evening observing.)
(Above: Some of the bright stars of winter as imaged by Trevor Jones of St Catherines, Ontario on March 21, 2015. On November evenings, the arrangement will be in the eastern sky and tilted to place Sirius near the bottom.)
(Above: The western sky, shown for mid-northern latitudes at 10:30 pm local time in mid-November, features the very bright stars Vega, Deneb, and Altair. At lower left, Fomalhaut peeks above the southern horizon.)
