When the Moon Hits You In The Eye!


   Tuesday September 12th the 18-day old waning gibbous Moon will be once again poking Taurus the Bull in the eye! Actually the Moon will be within about 0.5o from the reddish star Aldebaran, the ‘angry eye’ of Taurus.

   With binoculars the view of the Moon this close to Aldebaran and the rest of the v-shaped group of stars making up the open star cluster the Hyades should be as good as this graphic shows. But minus the blue lines!
