This month you’re in for a treat in the Auckland’s night sky. Within this month early you’ll get to see two gaseous planets, both summer and winter ones, Jupiter and also Saturn. Jupiter falls very early setting in for the night about 2050 hours westwards in with the constellation of Taurus, below the red giant star Aldebaran, the eye of the bull. As for the Saturn it rises very now early from the eastwards of Auckland in about 1900 hours, but it’s best to wait for about either hour or two later to get the best view possible onwards as it progressively moves to west, which is in between two constellations Virgo and Libra, follow by Scorpio. As Auckland moves towards winter, in which it’s the best time of the month to view the Orion Nebula before it settle down in within the next couple of months. But the good news is that you’ll get to see more of the Jewel box open cluster also its closed Omega Centauri nearby southwardly and left wise of Epsilon Centauri.
