Take some time to check out Jupiter and the Moon on Thursday, Nov. 1 after the sunset. Jupiter reaches its brightest of the year at the end of November. To see the total solar eclipse on Nov. 13 take a jaunt to Australia or better yet catch a ketch and sail around the South Pacific Ocean. It is summer there.
