Monday evening February 3rd the 10-day old waxing gibbous Moon will be about 3-4o from the reddish star Aldebaran in Taurus the Bull. Aldebaran, in mythology, represents the ‘angry eye’ of the Bull. Aldebaran is also the brightest star in the v-shaped Hyades open star cluster. Nearby is another open star cluster, the Pleiades, most observable as a small dipper-shape grouping of stars.
