--ZDNet, 5 star rating

--New York Times

Each week most PBS stations air Star Gazer with Jack Horkheimer, the world's first and only weekly TV series on naked-eye astronomy. The images on this page illustrate the show for the week of Monday, November 5, 2001.

Star Gazer Celebrates its 25th Anniversary! The Leonid Meteor Shower May Turn Into A Meteor Storm And An Announcement About Mars You Won't Believe!

Mars is still the brightest object in the southern evening sky, but it is moving away from us and getting dimmer. It will return in the year 2003.

The nights of November 17 and 18 promise a spectacular Leonids meteor shower. Use the bright stars Regulus and Algieba to get you pointed in the right direction.
