Thursday April 25th the 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.
On the day of the node crossing the 20-day old waning gibbous Moon will be within 1-2o from the planet Saturn.
