Last night’s full moon, the Hunter Moon, was the closest full moons of the year. A close full moon always brings extreme high and low tides. This weekend tides are highest near noon and midnight and low around sunrise and sunset. Boaters should be wary when tides are at extreme low tides, especially in inshore waters.
The moon appears close to the star cluster Pleiades tomorrow night. The Pleiades, also called Seven Sisters, is in the zodiacal constellation Taurus and look like a tiny version of a dipper.
The gibbous moon appears close to the bright red planet Mars on Tuesday night. The two are in the zodaical constellation Gemini. If you haven’t seen Mars in the last two months, take a look now. Mars has increased in brilliance and is the brightest celestial object in the eastern sky, except for the moon.
The moon is in the last quarter phase in the wee hours of Thursday morning. The moon is in the zodiacal constellation Cancer. On Friday morning, prior to sunrise, the moon appears close to the ringed-planet Saturn. The two are in the zodiacal constellation Leo, near the bright star Regulus.
The planet Venus appears close to the eastern sky prior to sunrise on any morning. Venus outshines all the other stars and planets. Venus is in the zodiacal constellation Virgo.
