The October-November calendar of our 1998 almanac references Hurricane Hazel (1954), the stock market collapse of 1929, and of course Thanksgiving Day.

| October/November 1998

Throughout the bi-monthly installments of our 1998 almanac, we try to present a mix of celestial events for sky gazers in addition to historical events. The October-November calendar is particularly active. It includes info on when to see the Draconid meteor shower, Orionid meteor shows, Taurid meteor shower, and Leonid meteor shower.
