Venus and Saturn - November 2. 

Supermoon

After nearly an hour post-sunset on your local time, you can catch the thin crescent of Saturn right behind the moon. You could measure it with the width of your middle finger at arm's length (nearly 3 degrees). It will also be joined by Venus to the left. 

Moon and Mars - November 5. 

November Supermoon

You could notice the crescent moon along with the red planet on this day and probably it's next. Moon parks right next to Mars on this day. 

Super-duper moon - November 14.

In the east right after sunset, the moon will be closest and largest to the Earth. This was last noted in 1948 and it has been nearly 6 decades since this amazing sight was seen. 

Buzzing the beehive - November 18.

This will happen late at night in the east when the gibbous moon will appear very close to the Beehive open star cluster. If you're using binoculars, you could locate this thousand-cluster star (also known as Messier 44) towards the upper right of the moon. 

Lion's Heart - November 22.

You can look towards the southeastern sky during the wee hours of the morning to check out the moon just a degree away from Lion's heart (Regulus). 

Saturn meets Mercury - November 23.

In the southwest horizon and right after sunset, check out Mercury meeting Saturn. You'd have to use binoculars for this one because both the planets might be tricky to spot. 

Moon and Jupiter - November 25.

Just an hour before sunrise, you can catch the Earth's only natural satellite hanging just below the giant planet, Jupiter. They might be only 2 degrees apart and make sure you're looking at the southeast horizon for the same. 

Are you excited to witness all the mentioned events?
