I guess astronomy is considered space exploration, so, I will share this here. I frequent a site that covers the stars and other galactic anomalies called EarthSky. It is full of interesting facts and this month is a wonderful time to star gaze. Depending on where you are, you should be able to see this in the sky at some point during the night:

November guide to the bright planets


Two of the five bright planets rise to great prominence this month, Venus and Jupiter, and they almost seem to balance two sides of our sky. Venus, the brightest planet, blazes in the west first thing at dusk. Jupiter, second-brightest, lords over the east before dawn. Two other planets, Saturn and Mars, join Venus at nightfall in early November. Although Venus and Mars remain evening objects throughout November, Saturn drops into the glare of sunset later this month. The most elusive bright planet – Mercury – might become visible at dusk toward the end of the month. Day by day, Mercury climbs upward from the setting sun as Saturn sinks sunward. These two worlds – Saturn and Mercury – will meet for a hard-to-see conjunction in the evening sky on November 23. Follow the links below to learn more about planets in November 2016.


There are many links you can follow there! have fun and happy exploration!

I enjoyed my time with my son bonding outside under the starry skies when he was younger, the amazement in his eyes for ever etched in my soul! Now, my grandkids give me the same wonderment!
