      Space Weather News for Nov. 30, 2002
      http://www.spaceweather.com

      PLANETS CONVERGE: Don't miss this. Just before dawn on Sunday, Dec. 1st,
      the planets Venus and Mars will converge with the slender crescent Moon.
      The trio will fit within a circle 1.5 degrees in diameter. Northern
      hemisphere observers should look toward the eastern horizon around 5:30
      a.m. local time. Venus will be dazzling, about 350 times brighter than
      nearby red Mars. Can you see a ghostly glow across the crescent Moon's
      dark terrain? Astronomers call that "Earthshine"--it's one of the
      loveliest sights in the sky.

      Visit spaceweather.com for a sky map of the gathering and for details
      about possible auroras on Dec. 1st and 2nd.
