When the Moon Hits Your Eye

Thursday evening October 17th look for the 19-day old waning gibbous Moon to be rising with the stars of the open star cluster the Hyades. The Moon will be about 3-4o from the reddish star Aldebaran. Aldebaran represents the ‘angry eye’ of Taurus the Bull, and is at the end of the v-shaped asterism, the Hyades.
