Buzzin' with the Bees

There's a beehive that you can observe at night... through a telescope. Don't have a 'scope? No worries! Even if you're stargazing with the naked eye, you'll see Mars hanging out in a little cloud of "bees" very early tomorrow morning. It'll be a fun way to use the extra hour gained by setting the clock back. Fingers crossed for clear skies!

Sorry, this was scheduled to post on 10/31 but for some reason didn't. It's not be too late, though. Mars is still close by, just below the cluster. This link will help you locate the beehive. This link will help you find Mars. The book spread above is pp 42-43 from one of my favorite astronomy books.
