Enjoy the Beauty of a Thin Crescent Moon
A couple of weeks ago When I posted a photo of the full moon, Zhu commented that she really loved a crescent moon. I promised her a picture of one and here it is. I have to admit that I did not take this photograph, it is part of an excellent article from Space.com that my favorite nephew Glen sent to me today. It explains just what a new crescent moon is and how to see it in the next few evenings.
Look to the west an hour or so after sunset and you should be able to see the crescent moon, the star cluster The Pleiades, and even the planet Mercury. Click on the photo above and read all about it.
