Star Watch

Published 10/29/2011, for Lake County News Chronicle

November may be chilly, but both morning and evening skies have shows worth a trip outside. Early risers can watch Mars as it moves in on Regulus, the brightest star in Leo, and makes its closest approach on the 11th. The period of best visibility begins about 1 a.m., when reddish Mars and white Regulus appear not far above the eastern horizon, at the base of the “Sickle” of stars marking Leo’s head. As the morning wears on, the pair moves westward, ending quite high in the southeast at dawn.
