6 Sky Events This Week: Pegasus Flies While Mars Visits a Stellar Snow Globe
A meteor shower looks lukewarm, but Mars heats up a snowy star globe this week for stargazers.
The moon rides a winged steed and winks at the red eye of Taurus, the Bull, to the delight of sky-watchers this week, while Mars plays with a stellar snow globe.
To see the moon ride Pegasus, look toward the high southern sky in the early evening on Monday, November 3, to spot the waxing gibbous moon. It points the way to the Great Square of Pegasus, the mythical winged steed.
To the upper right of the moon, search out the upside-down front half of the legendary winged horse. Pegasus is easy to track down, thanks to the four bright stars that mark its chest. By the new year, the constellation will be setting in the west in the early evenings.
