Moon Faces Off With Taurus

   Monday evening November 2nd the 17-day old waning gibbous Moon will be alongside the open star cluster the Hyades, a v-shaped group of stars making up the face of Taurus the Bull. The ‘angry eye’ of the Bull, the reddish star Aldebaran, is about 2-3o from the Moon.

   Look for Mars off to the west from the Moon, and Jupiter and Saturn further west over the southwestern horizon.
