November 14th, 2015
The Moon returns to the evening sky tonight and provides us with an opportunity to see Earthshine illuminating its darkened surface. Unfortunately, it’s currently traversing through Sagittarius, the Archer, one of the most southern constellations in the entire night sky.
This makes the young Moon difficult to spot, especially from the northern hemisphere, as it will appear low over the south-western horizon. Those in the southern hemisphere might have more luck.
