Skywatching: October 7-8

Moon and Venus

Look for the crescent moon just after sunset on Monday or Tuesday night.

The thin crescent moon will be near the planet Venus after sunset. Look for them low in the southwest at about 7:00 pm Central time; they should make a pretty pair in the twilight. The image below (from Stellarium) shows their position on Tuesday night, October 8.
