This month you can catch planet pairs, our moon near red stars and more! Catch bright Venus in the predawn sky by looking for fainter Mars below it on Oct. 1, really close on the 5th and above Venus after that. In the Oct. 8 – 11 predawn sky watch the moon glide near the Pleiades star cluster and pass near the red stars Aldebaran in the constellation Taurus and Betelgeuse in Orion. Watch for more about when and where to look up this month! Credit: NASA
