I said on Sunday that there might be clouds.
There were, there are. You can still see the Moon
but Sunday (yesterday) was cloudless!
It will NOT be bad over New Hampshire tonight.
Try around 5:15pm looking East. Should be hard to miss.
Slight chance we might have some clouds tomorrow, Monday, November 14 — the main day so to speak.

Yes, earlier in the month it was Venus that was close to the Moon.
Now it is Jupiter, because they all move about — nothing stays still up there.
Venus is still around and visible in the Southwest sky, very close to the horizon, but setting BELOW the horizon by 7:30 pm. 5:30 pm, directly SW, is a good time to see Venus.
Enjoy Jupiter. It was spectacular last night — beautiful opposite conjunction with the full Moon. Today it will be above the Moon. While you are at it take a gander at Orion and soak in its grandeur.

I nearly choked when I heard it on WMUR. No, Benghazi is NOT in the Middle East. If it is, so would be Athens — that the capital of Greece.
Yes, I understand that 35% of adults in N.H. cannot place either Maine or Vermont on a map. So, it is very hard when you are dealing with far away foreign countries.
So let me help out here with a map. This is the Mediterranean. Benghazi is further west than Athens — and that is Athens, Greece!
Istanbul, Turkey (that being where all the Thanksgiving birds are shipped over from), is the demarcation line between Europe and Asia, i.e, the East (where all those wogs come from).
So here are the WMUR reports. Poor WMUR. They can’t help it. Most of them were educated in N.H. pre-Common Core. I just want to make sure that we have the facts right. That is all.
Don’t get me wrong. I am not a huge fan of Annie Kuster. She is way TOO PLAIN for my liking. I am very superficial like that. I like my female politicians, well if the truth be known, all females (and even the men) to be halfway decent looking! Sorry. But, at least I am honest. That is why I always liked Michele Bachmann despite her crazy politics! Well at least I have SOME standards.

Underlying ‘star’ charts extracted from neave.com/planetarium/
Two days ago we had the perfect ‘Moon trying to eat Venus’ conjunction
(the ‘crescent and star‘ symbol that appears on Islamic flags).
But, as we spin around, everything in the night sky moves from East to West.
So during the night Jupiter will swing from East to West —
as the two images above show.
Every night around 10:45, before starting my 3rd shift, I take the dogs out.
In the Winter I always look up, towards the East, to see Jupiter.
During the Winter, night-by-night, Jupiter will be, at the same time, say 10:45, further West.
That is because we are all going around the Sun …
Neptune, Uranus and Pluto are up there too — BUT, not naked eye visible. OK?
