Sunday January 25th at 10:23 UT (0:23 am CST) our Moon will be crossing the plane of the ecliptic moving south. This is known as the descending node, one of two intersections the Moon’s orbital path (dark green line) has with the ecliptic.
That evening, Sunday, the waxing crescent Moon will be over the western horizon below the stars of Aries the Ram. The three brightest stars form a small bent line with the brightest star, Hamal, at the top end of the line.
