Hello everyone,I wanted to pass this along to all the observers out there 
before the newsletter is sent out.
Mars passes through the Beehive Star Cluster (M44) on the morning of November 1 
and 2. The Beehive cluster is near the center of the constellation of Cancer 
the Crab. Mars and the Beehive Cluster rise about 10:40 pm local time and 
should be high enough to observe after midnight tonight.
