Tonight's Sky for March 24: Moon and the Hyades

Want to see the Hyades star cluster in Taurus but don't know where to look? Well, tonight's your lucky night as the Moon will be parked right next to the star cluster tonight. To see the show, simply head out and find the Moon. Now, thanks to Luna's light, one may have to look with some effort but there will be a sideways 'V' of stars right next to the Moon. That 'V' is the Hyades, which transforms into dozens of stars with binocular aid.
