Moon and Gemini

On Wednesday night the bright gibbous moon appears in the zodiacal constellation Gemini. You’ll like how high the moon gets on this night.

Gemini is one of the northern-most constellations in the zodiac. At the height of summer when the sun is overhead, the sun is close or in the zodiacal constellation Gemini. When overhead, Gemini is in or close to our zenith.

Take a look at Gemini on some moonless night and you’ll see that the Milky Way, that cloud of billions of stars passes through the constellation.
