SKYLINE for November 2014
Compiled by the Noble Planetarium Staff
Upcoming Sky Events
After an exciting October full of sky events, November may seem a little empty. But keep your eyes to the night skies. In November we will have three meteor showers, small as they may be.
Though the average meteor fall for these ranges between 7 and 10 meteors per hours, these showers fall very close to each other which may make for some active crossover.
Our next Star Party is:
Date: November 1, 2014
Time: Sunset till 11 p.m.
Location: Fort Worth Museum of Science and History
November 18, 2014
UNT Health Sci. Center Rm 110
