   Sunday morning, September 14th, before the Sun rises look toward the eastern horizon for the waning gibbous Moon to be rising in between two open star clusters, the Pleiades and the Hyades. Both of which are part the constellation of Taurus the Bull. As the banner graphic at the top of the page shows the moon is approximately 7o from either open star cluster.
