Don't forget that the next couple of nights is the time for viewing the Leonid meteor shower. This year there is quite a bit of interference from the moon so the best time for viewing is probably around midnight. Just go outside and look up. The meteors should appear to come from the constellation Leo, but you could see them from anywhere really. This is one occasion where a telescope or binoculars will hinder you. All you need is a nice, wide, clear view of the sky.
