Moon May Get Stung!

   Monday morning September 26th the 25-day old waning crescent Moon will be within about 5o from the open star cluster M-44, also known as the Beehive Cluster. This is a collection of several hundred stars with a combined apparent magnitude of around 4 making it bright enough to be seen with the unaided eye.
   Even in moderately light polluted skies M-44 can be seen, and seen even better when viewed with binoculars.
