Megan Roth’s Capstone: Look up Blackman

Megan Roth, Editor-in-Chief

For the second article in my Capstone series. I gathered all of the planets, constellations, and unique changes in the night sky for the last two weeks of November 2019.  

The constellations visible throughout all of November include Pisces, Sculptor, Tucana, Andromeda, Cassiopeia, and Phoenix.  

Middle Tennessee will also be at the center of the Alpha Monocertoid meteor shower from November 22nd  until the 23rd.  The last time this shower was visible in Middle Tennessee was in 1995, and there was an average of 400 meteors per hour. The planets visible with times are detailed below:
