Jupiter glides past the Moon and Seven Sisters

 There are some fantastic observing opportunities coming along over the next few days.

If we have clear skies on the nights of November 24th and 25th there will be two chances to see the Moon and Jupiter close together in the sky.

On November 24th Jupiter will be just beneath the Moon while on the following night November 25th Jupiter will appear to be above the Moon.

If that is not enough on November 26th the Moon will be just below the Pleiades or Seven Sisters which is a cluster of stars and can be seen in the sky as a fuzzy patch.

You don’t need binoculars or telescopes to see these events just clear skies. Good luck!!
