Tonight's Sky for April 10: Moon Meets the Hyades

This evening, the Moon will meet up with the Hyades, one of the closest and most prominent star clusters. To see the show, simply go outside and find the Moon. That done, look for bright orange Aldebaran, the brightest star in the cluster as well as in the whole constellation of Taurus. To get a full appreciation of the sight, turn even a pair of small binoculars on the Moon to reveal the dozens of stars in the cluster.
