Waxing Crescent Moon

March 30, 2017

 Occasionally, we all like to observe the night sky above us.  The need to feel connection with the stars and planets is in us all.  I recently found a great blog with information for novices as well as the more informed  "astronomer":  earthsky.org.  I subscribed a few days ago and learned that we don't always see the planet Venus.  It waxes and wanes like the moon, but on a 1.6 year cycle: http://earthsky.org/todays-image/photos-venus-crescent-mar-25- 2017-inferior-conjunction.  

Another fun tool for night viewing can be found on https://www.timeanddate.com/astronomy/night/usa/durham.  Just add your city's name in the search field.  

I don't claim to understand all of this, but I can always walk away knowing more than I do now.
