Moon shines close to Jupiter and Pleiades star cluster on March 16
The waxing crescent moon shines close to the Pleiades star cluster and the blazing planet Jupiter this Saturday night, March 16, 2013. No matter where you live worldwide, tonight’s moon will be in the vicinity of the Pleiades star cluster, although, from the eastern part of the globe – Asia, Indonesia, Australia, or New Zealand – the moon will be closer to the Pleiades on March 17. Plus, as seen from all over the world, the moon will appear closer to Jupiter and the star Aldebaran on March 17. .

On a dark night, most people see the Pleiades cluster as a tiny dipper-shaped formation made of six little starlets. That lost seventh star – the missing Pleiad – is the stuff of myth and legend.

If the moonlight glare or light pollution makes it difficult to see the Pleiades tonight, try using binoculars. The Pleiades cluster readily fits within a binocular field of view. For reference, a typical binocular field covers about 5 degrees of sky. The Pleiades dipper is about one degree wide, and the moon measures about one-half degree in diameter.

Aldebaran, the brightest in the constellation Taurus the Bull, depicts the Bull’s glaring eye. The Pleiades also belong to this constellation, marking Taurus the Bull’s shoulder.
