Penumbral Lunar Eclipse November 30th @ 4:44am (peak). Not be a very good one and most of us in the Muncie area won't see much shadow if any.
If you missed it in October, Mars is still a very good object to observe. Still only about 45 million miles away.
Note: After sunset you can observe Mars, Uranus, Neptune, Saturn, and Jupiter through November. Jupiter and Saturn are setting in the early evenings shortly after sunset.
Venus followed by Merury rise in the early morning sky just before daybreak.
By mid-November the Hunter and the Bull are well up in the Southeast around 10 pm.
In October we asked, "What was the first spacecraft to land on Mars?"
Answer: Viking was the first spacecraft to successfully land on Mars.
November's Question: When was the first black hole discovered?
Low-mass red dwarf stars maintain a constant luminosity for trillions of years.
