November Comet Watching
Updated: Tuesday, November 12 2013, 08:19 PM EST
Over the month of November, and especially the next clear, few nights coming up, we will be able to see several comets - a rare occurrence for sky watchers.
Comet ISON, discovered in September of 2012, was forecasted to be quite a show; however, this is not the case anymore. Another comet, called "Lovejoy," will be the main event in the dark skies.
Four comets will be visible in binoculars or telescopes Wednesday morning, Thursday morning, and Friday morning. Comet Lovejoy will be visible to the naked eye.
Prime viewing will be before dawn, around 5 am. Look in the eastern sky near Mars and the constellations Leo and Virgo.
If you have an iPhone, you can download the free app called "Sky Map."
Comet ISON will be featured in our night sky through early December, so this week isn't the only week to see this.

Tuesday night, the northern lights (usually very rare for this part of the county) may be visible. Two CME's, or coronal mass ejections, have merged together. It could interact with Earth's magnetic field on November 13th, producing a chance to see the northern lights.
*THIS IS NOT A GUARANTEE* Just something to look out for Tuesday night and Wednesday night. Best timing for this is usually late, after 9pm and closer to midnight.
