What To See In The Night Sky This Year

In addition, I’ve included a dazzling upgrade for you. Venus is prominently visible from Earth throughout November 2021, following its peak elongation on October 29. This is a wonderful time for Southern Hemisphere skywatchers to look for Venus. Try November 6th evening, when the moon will be a very thin crescent. A new moon rises barely above the horizon. Absolute tranquilly! The moon will be a broader crescent by the evening of November 7. Setting later than the sun and quite close to Venus. On the evenings of November 7 and 8, 2021, those in the north will be able to observe the moon pass by Venus. Binoculars may be used to place the moon and Venus in the same area for a unique view. What’s more, guess what? On the moon’s night side, you’ll also notice earthshine, a curious radiance. Isn’t that what we refer to as a colourful cherry on top?
