13th November 2010

Saturday, 7:15 pm to 7:35 pm

Not much observations today. I only observed the Moon for some time. It was so cloudy. It was raining in the evening. I printed two star maps for the month of November, It shows that Jupiter would be passing through the "ecliptic". It also says that if you see a bright star in the sky which is not mentioned in the map, it might be a planet.

It also says that there will be a meteor shower in the northern hemisphere on 5th, 12th and 17th of November 2010. I think I could see it.

I also searched the internet to find out that Venus can be seet at the far east, one hour before sunrise. So I realised that the mysterious comet (from the entry on 10th) was actually Venus. It had moved as the Earth rotates and the Sun rises.
