The eastern sky these fine late October nights is filled with deep sky treats for stargazers of all types. There is a bit of something for everyone.
For the naked eye observer, the first of the brilliant stars of winter start to peek over the eastern horizon: Capella and Aldebaran. Three of the nearest galactic star clusters are visible to the naked eye: the Pleiades, the Hyades, and the Perseus Moving Cluster.
The October night sky map here provides a reference showing where to look to see this month’s night sky treats.
Dear god yes.
