October Night Sky: The shorter nights are now with us as the Sun moves further into the southern sky. Mercury spends most of the month
in the morning sky, lying too close to the Sun to be easily seen. Venus is a brilliant object, readily observed in the western sky from just
after sunset. The planet sets around 11pm by the end of the month. Venus and Saturn are within 3 degrees of each other on the 30th. Mar
is still well positioned for viewing in the early evening. Saturn sinks lower into the western sky this month and is nearby the bright red star,
Antares. There are two New Moons in October- on the first and last day of the month.
