Deane Morrison is a science writer at the University of Minnesota, where she authors the Minnesota Starwatch column. In this edition of Northern Sky, Deane explains the apparition of Jupiter, one of the brightest objects in the sky; its opposition (which is supposed to be a nice one); and how to differentiate it from the stars around it by location and color. We can also see Venus and Saturn, the November full moon, and much more.
