ABSTRACT
The article presents a guide to observing the evening sky during the months of November and December 2002. Conjunctions involving the planets Mercury and Venus are expected to occur and the planets Jupiter and Saturn will become more visible over the eastern horizon at sunset during the period. A penumbral lunar eclipse is set to happen on November 20, 2002, and a solar eclipse two weeks later on December 4, 2002. During the period, there will also be two opportunities for viewing annual meteor showers. The Leonid meteor shower is expected to reach its peak activity on November 18 and 19, 2002, and the Geminid meteor shower on December 13 and 14, 2002.
