Comet Lemmon

Good news for stargazers; the nights are getting longer, sunsets are coming sooner, and Bob King has a short list of some notable sights in the November skies.

-The International Space Station will be shining bright as it passes from west to east across the southern sky. The ISS will be at its brightest this weekend.

-The Leonid meteor show will hit its peak in the early morning of November 18th. Look to the constellation Leo and it might just look like fireballs flying from the lion's mouth.
