First Quarter Moon
Tonight’s first quarter moon appears in the zodiacal constellation Taurus. The moon appears high near our zenith after sunset. The moon is near the star clusters Pleaides and the Hyades. The Hyades is an assembly of many stars that looks like a large V. The brightest star in the constellation and imbedded in the Hyades is the orange star Aldebaran.
The moon moves up close to the bright planet Jupiter on Sunday and Monday nights. Jupiter is in the zodiacal constellation Gemini, two mythological twins. Jupiter is the brightest of celestial objects in our night sky.
