The main astronomical events of November 2022

The most interesting astronomical event in November is a unique lunar eclipse, during which our natural satellite will temporarily close the planet Uranus, which is just entering into opposition, for ground-based observers.
Of the celestial phenomena available for observation, three fairly powerful annual meteor showers should be mentioned: the Southern and Northern Taurids, as well as the Leonids.
The latter in 1999-2002 were marked by powerful "rains", but now their activity is low and does not exceed 20 meteors per hour.
The conjunction of Mercury with Venus on the evening of November 21, you can try to look through a telescope or binoculars immediately after sunset, the planets will be located low above the southwestern horizon.
