This evening the waxing Moon has moved further east from its location yesterday and is now poised (with some imagination) to be slam-dunked into the constellation Crater the Cup. Crater the cup, along with Corvus the Crow ride on the back of Hydra, the many headed snake. The stars of these constellations are reletively dim and with that in mind (or view) it is actually past the best viewing time for this trio of constellations as they are setting shortly after sunset and consequently, as the banner graphic shows, are not very high above the southwestern horizon.
Keep an eye on the Moon over the next few days as it will pass by the star Spica and then Saturn.
