Moon in Motion November 7-18
During the evening hours between Wednesday November 7th
the Moon will orbit eastward passing several planets and bright stars as it goes from a thin waxing crescent shape to just past first quarter and the waxing gibbous shape by the 18th
(The animated graphic is set to 1-day intervals.)
In addition to the Moon moving along in its orbit the Earth is also moving eastward along its orbit around the Sun. As the Earth revolves the sky shifts toward the west gradually moving the stars closer to the western horizon. Even the planets gradually shift toward the western horizon and out of sight.
