10 Nov    The first-quarter moon is high in the south at sunset and sets just after midnight.

11 Nov    Low in the southwest at dusk, Venus enters the dome of the Teapot constellation, Sagittarius, and crosses the dome over the next few evenings, finally exiting on the 15th.

12 Nov    Using binoculars, look for Venus which passes less than 1 finger-width to the lower left of magnitude 2.9 Kaus Borealis, the uppermost star of Sagittarius’ dome.

13 Nov    The waxing gibbous moon is high in the southeast at sunset. About 80 percent of the surface is illuminated.

15 Nov    Exiting the dome of the Teapot this evening, Venus is one-half degree to the right of magnitude 3.3 Phi Sagittarii.
