November

The Object of the Month of November is NGC1555 - Hinds Variable Nebula, a tricky object to observe in the constellation Taurus.

Variable nebulae are reflection nebulae that change in brightness because of changes in their star, in this case, T Tauri. The star T Tauri varies unpredictably from about 9.3 to 14 magnitude.

The nebula was discovered on October 11, 1852 by John Russell Hind.

This month's object is quite a challenge, but still could be fun trying to sweep up. Good Luck!
