5 The Night Sky Friday, November 8  Using binoculars shortly after dark, look a little to the upper left of the nearly first-quarter Moon (as seen from North America) for Alpha and Beta Capricorni, two wide binocular double stars. Alpha is easy to resolve and can even be split with the naked eye if you have sharp vision. Beta, with its closer, fainter secondary star (just west of the primary) is a tougher double in binoculars. Saturday, November 9  First-quarter Moon (exact at 12:57 a.m. EST Sunday morning). The Moon shines at nightfall about midway between Altair far to its upper right and Fomalhaut far to its lower left. It hangs just above the dim pattern of Capricornus. Sunday, November 10  Cassiopeia shines high in the northeast in early evening, with its five-star W pattern standing on end. Look far below it for Capella rising. Far right of Capella is the little Pleiades cluster, with Aldebaran down below it. Monday, November 11  Orion displays itself well up in the east-southeast by 9 or 10 p.m. now (depending on how far east or west you are in your time zone). Far left of Orion is Jupiter, shining brightly on its background of Gemini. Sky & Telescope
