Weather Questions 11/18: Lights in the Sky

This week's weather question.

Astronomy technically isn't part of Meteorology but it's something many Meteorologists are taught. I get asked plenty of questions about what can be viewed in the sky. It's always fascinating and sometimes, the night sky can put on a real show.

This week I had two questions that were both related to the night sky.

The first one is from Joni, "How can we view the comet Ison, and when is the best time to see it?"

Many people have been calling our newsroom about lights in the sky, so that one may answer many of your questions.

The second question is from Marilyn, "Lately I've been seeing a bright light in the southern sky, is that a planet? If so, which one?"
