November 2014 Stargazing – Skywatching – Astronomy Night Sky

Here is your quick video guide to November 2014 stargazing and sky-watching of the astronomy events visible in the night sky: The big space news this month is the ESA mission of the Rosetta spacecraft and the landing of the Philae lander on Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko (Comet C-G).

November 2014 offers two meteor showers: The Taurid meteor shower and the Leonid meteor shower. The Taurid meteor shower is the debris left by Comet 2/P Encke and will be visible from mid-October through December 2014. Look in the direction of Cetus and Taurus in the night sky to watch the 2014 Taurid meteor shower.

The Leonid meteor shower peaks on the 17th and 18th of November 2014. They come from Comet 55/P Tempel/Tuttle. Watch the Leonid meteor shower by looking toward Leo in the night sky.
