    As of 25th October 2016, I am not participating in this site. Until MSE sorts out the issue with insidious trouble-makers, it's no longer a place I wish to be. I can't be bothered with the constant battle with trolls.

    MSE is not a nice place to be at the moment, and hasn't been for a while now. So I'm outta here for the foreseeable future.

    October 18: Moon and Aldebaran


    The Moon has been playing a game of hide-and-seek all year. Most months it has passed in front of Aldebaran, blocking the bright eye of Taurus from view. It will do so again tonight. The disappearing act will be visible across most of the United States.



    October 19: M31


    M31, the Andromeda galaxy, is visible to the unaided eye as a hazy smudge of light. It stands about half-way up the eastern sky as night falls. At a distance of 2.5 million light-years, it’s the farthest object that is easily visible to the eye alone.



    October 20: Orionid Meteors


    The Orionid meteor shower should be at its best late tonight. Unfortunately, the Moon rises around midnight, so it will cast its glow in the sky during the shower’s peak. The Moon also will be quite close to Orion, making things even worse.


    You might see some of the meteor showers if it's clear tonight!

    The best time to look out is between 1am and 3am...not ideal for most people, but good for an insomniac! x

    I knew it was wrong but the correct name just wouldn't come to me

    We had beautiful clear sky until around midnight. The Stars themselves were just so bright . I didn't see any shooting stars though . Time I went to bed (1am) it had clouded over

    I live in a field, the nearest street lights are four miles away so complete blackness and I've still never seen a shooting star

    Still I get to see the northern lights a few times a year, which a lot of people never will

    I would love to see the Northern Lights! Sounds like you should see some shooting stars from there...you need to complain to NoMoon she almost promised them.
