The moon slips into our evening sky in the coming week following New Moon on Sunday. It is moving from the zodiacal constellation Aries into Taurus. On Thursday night, the crescent moon crosses over the star cluster Hyades, the head of the Bull.
Have you ever heard the phrase “the moon holds water?” This is the time of year when the crescent moon is positioned in a way that it looks like it can hold water between the cusps, between its horns.
To think of it another way, while the moon is setting, it looks like it is lit from below.
