Meteor showers and lunar eclipses: November is here to taunt us

I tend to both like and dislike the month of November. My mom was born in November. That’s reason enough to love the month. The leaves further turn and a cold wispy air comes into play. That’s a good reason to like the month.

Yet, November is also elections time and the air is filled with lies, innuendoes, and wackiness. While it’s important to vote, elections have also become too expensive, prolonged, and outrageous. Hence, November is a bit of a bummer. Also, while the concept of Thanksgiving is a great one (that of gratitude), I do not care for turkey. November makes one sleepy.

With that said, we do gain an hour this weekend. Daylight savings time will end at 2 a.m local time on Nov. 6. People in states that observe it will move their clocks back one hour. But, I have to admit I don’t really do not anything with that hour and my body just becomes discombobulated. By the way, I love the word discombobulated. It’s fun. And, sometimes too accurate. But, I do digress a bit.

Speaking of being discombobulated, November does have two upcoming cool things to be on the look out for. This November, we will have the chance to catch more than one meteor shower and the last lunar eclipse of 2022. Pretty cool. We can wander the streets of New York (pepper spray in hand- I joke) looking up at the sky. New York is pretty at night with all its lights. Which, of course, may make catching some of these momentous sky moments a bit difficult. Hence, November is a bit if a vexing and taunting month.

Enjoy it, if you can.
