New moon is today, and there is a solar annular eclipse visible in parts of Australia and the South Pacific.
Tonight look toward the southeast around 9 p.m. to see the bright full moon low in the sky. Saturn will just above it.
The moon will be in the east in the late afternoon sky, and grow more prominent as the sun gets lower in the west.
There is a lot to look for in the evening sky.
While many amateur astronomers are happy when the moon is not dimming the sky, I like the moon because of its intrinsic beauty and its usefulness as a guide.
The sun sets tonight at 5:47. If you look toward the southwest from 6 to 7, you will see the 4-day-old moon forming a right angle triangle with Mars and Antares, the brightest star in Scorpius the Scorpion.
This weekend and for the next two weeks or so is a good time to view the zodiacal light in the predawn eastern sky.
Box: Moon watch: The moon is 9 days old and does not set until 1:25 a.m. Friday. Full moon will be next Tuesday.
Tonight, the four-day-old crescent moon will be quite beautiful in the western sky after sunset (7:21 p.m.). The moon sets at 8:27 p.m., and astronomical twilight ends at 8:58.
Tonight find the moon in the southwestern sky after sunset, between 6:30 and 7 p.m. when the sky is darkening at the end of twilight. It will not be near any bright object.
