The Sentinel-6 Michael Freelich satellite was launched Saturday from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. The satellite is the size of a pickup truck and it rode the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.
The satellite will monitor and monitor sea level for many years to come. The data it collects will also be useful in improving the accuracy of the weather forecast.
Back on Earth, we will see the Moon pass through Mars in the middle of the week. Look north and southeast at night to see the moon. Once you see the moon, it will be easy to find Mars, which is very bright. It will be dropped from the moon on Tuesday to just above the moon on Wednesday and to the right of the moon on Thursday.
The full moon will come early in the morning on November 30. It is known as the full moon, the last of autumn, the Beaver Moon, the Frosty Moon and the Sogging Moon. It will rise around sunset in the east and set in the west around sunrise.
This full moon will also bring an eclipse. An eclipse is usually subtle, but if you have good eyesight, you may be able to cast a little shadow over the moon. About 82% of the moon’s color will appear darker. The best time to watch is at the eclipse peak on November 30 at 4:45 p.m.
The next time we see the full moon, it will be winter, both meteorological and astronomical.
