Fortunately, the sky was clear last night. Where I live we saw a wonderful pass of the most recent Starlink satellite launch. They looked positively eerie all bunched up in a short, twinkling line in the southern sky. Like a magic wand from the Harry Potter movies. Minutes before, the crescent moon occulted the star Ain (Epsilon Tauri) in Taurus. The star disappeared in a quick “gulp” right on time. I hope you were able to see either or both events.
There’s more to come! Tonight the crescent moon will visit Venus as it moves eastward in its orbit and climbs higher above the western horizon each night. The sight of the two brightest night-sky objects side by side is always worth a look. I wish you clear skies and a beautiful evening under the heavens.
