Evan Hazard/Northland Stargazing: A poor showing for Venus, good for Mercury
Reminders: Earlier sunsets and daylight savings time (after Nov. 3) make evening stargazing easier. Also, at this time of year, it gets darker two or three minutes earlier each night, which seems to slow down the stars’ annual movement. The Leonid meteor shower won’t be much in the wee hours of Nov. 16-18 because Luna will brighten the sky those nights.
