Mercury : Following on from the end of October Mercury there is still a good opportunity in the early part of the month. With the ecliptic climbing steeply, Mercury gets good separation from the Sun before dawn.

Venus : Venus is switching to the evening star but is out of sight at present.

Mars : Mars fading and shrinking now and sinking in the southwest as it gets dark, despite that more or less holding position relative to the Sun.

Jupiter : Very bright as usual and moving round to the nighttime sky Jupiter is heading from Cancer towards Leo.

Saturn : Saturn came to opposition on May 10th so its coming to end of its display for now, passing round the Sun and re-appearing in December

Uranus : Uranus came to opposition on Oct 7th in Pisces

Neptune : Neptune rises about an hour ahead of Uranus in Aquarius.

Meteors : The Leonids are due over the night of the 17th/18th and the Moon will not interfere.
