February 11th, 2016
Last month, on the 12th, the waxing crescent Moon was moving through Aquarius in the evening sky. A faint constellation, there were no bright stars to illuminate the twilight and unfortunately this month’s moon doesn’t fare any better as it passes through Pisces.
That being said, this is still an excellent opportunity to see Earthshine and the Moon might help to spot some of the fainter stars of Pisces.
