Bulls Eye? Bull’s Nose!

   Tuesday morning November 15th the just past full Moon, the waning gibbous Moon, will appear to be poking Taurus the Bull on the Nose. Ignore the illustration and this will be an interesting binocular viewing opportunity as the Moon will be within a few degrees from the reddish star Aldebaran in the V-shaped face of the Bull.
   Depending on your viewing location you may see the Moon come within 0.45o from Aldebaran. The closest approach will be at 17 UT, (11 am CST).
