In this week’s blog we take a look at notable planetary events for November. We touch base with Uranus and Ceres in opposition and prepare you for the November 19th lunar eclipse. Plus: why is November, from the Latin novem for nine, the eleventh month of the year?

Caption for photo below.Uranus and moons composite image from the October 2017 opposition. Image credit and copyright by Anis Abdul. The imaging gear used was a Celestron Edge 11 telescope, that was “amplified” with our Tele Vue 2.5x Powermate to achieve 7,000 mm focal length. Imaging was done with a ZWO ASI224MC color camera. The gear rode on an AP900 mount. The best 50% of frames from 20-minutes of video were processed for the image. Software used was PixInsight and Registax.“One of the closer moon (Miranda) is actually visible in my stacks but is lost in the planet glow,” says Anis.
