Don't miss out this month the spectacular Draconids and Orionids meteor showers, the Moon, Planets, Stars, Constellations, Deep Sky Objects and more. Planets begin to depart the evening sky as chilly October winds blow. Mars and Saturn still dominate the southern sky, Mars in Capricornus and Saturn in Sagittarius. The waxing moon travels between the two in the middle of the month. A modest telescope reveals the rings orbiting Saturn. The orange disk of Mars decreases in size and its features fade from view as its distance from Earth increases over the course of the month. Skywatchers will get great views of our neighboring worlds from dusk to dawn this month. Discover the beauty and wonder of the night sky that has fascinated humanity for millenia. Clear Skies Everyone! http://earthsky.org/tonight http://earthsky.org/clusters-nebulae-... http://hubblesite.org/videos/tonights...
