Also, Sidewalk Astronomy Saturday in Monrovia, it's International Observe the Moon Night! 7:00-9:00p.m. Myrtle and Lime streets.

My monthly video is about it, plus about Juno spacecraft flying by earth for a Gravity Assist on Wednesday.

My video and JPL blog page (with a Comet ISON blog I wrote 2 weeks ago) http://solarsystem.nasa.gov/news/whatsup-archive.cfm

Oh, we saw Comet ISON yesterday morning!  Here's my personal blog http://jane.whiteoaks.com/

Very bright, right overhead (for LA).  Free but you'll miss part of the Dodgers/Braves (or Falcons/Jets).
