The constellation Lacerta, the Pinwheel Galaxy (M33), and Mirach’s Ghost (NGC 404)

November 1–8, 2012: The constellation Lacerta is an excellent target for naked-eye observers, the Pinwheel Galaxy (M33) in Triangulum offers small-telescope owners nice views, and large-telescope owners can seek out Mirach's Ghost (NGC 404) in Andromeda.

Lacerta the Lizard contains none of the 200 brightest stars, no named star, no meteor shower, and no Messier object. It does contain one notable deep-sky object: open cluster NGC 7243. Astronomy: Roen Kelly

Each week, Astronomy magazine Senior Editor Michael E. Bakich, a
master at explaining how to observe, posts a podcast about three or more
objects or events you can see in the sky.
