Skies Over Crestone: November 2019 Count the stars!

At the start of the month, one hour after sunset, Saturn is in the south-southwest, above the handle of the teapot of Sagittarius. It is part of a long line of three major planets with Jupiter and Venus. Watch the movement of Venus throughout this month. By its end, Venus will have charged past Jupiter and will be approaching Saturn The big event will be the rare passage of Mercury across the face of our sun. The last one visible on the earth was three and a half years ago May 9, 2016 and the next will be 13 years in the future on May 13, 2032. A telescope with a good solar filter will be necessary to observe this transit. Be very careful!
