The change back to standard time brings earlier nightfall — and a chance to get in some eyes-only stargazing before dinnertime!.

The undisputed king of the evening sky is mighty Jupiter, a dazzling "star" high in the southeast at dusk that far outshines all the real stars around it. Other planets are above the horizon at sunset, but to see them you need some kind of optical aid.

Hanging upside down above Jupiter is the winged horse Pegasus, and off to its left are the dysfunctional mythological family of King Cepheus, his vain wife Cassiopeia, and their daughter Andromeda.

Take a leisurely stroll through all these sights, and more, by downloading November's audio sky tour. It's a 5-megabyte MP3 file that's 5½ minutes long.
