Tonight's Sky for January 2: Moon Meets the Hyades


Tonight, the nearly-Full Moon will meet the Hyades star cluster, which is located in the constellation of Taurus. As for finding the Moon, that's easy. As for the Hyades, look for bright orange Aldebaran, alpha Taurus an eye of the Bull. Next, look for a sideways 'V' of stars (containing Aldebaran), which represents the brightest stars in the cluster. Needless to say, optical aid will reveal far more stars.
