Waxing Crescent Moon

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": 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: 2017-inferior-conjunction.

Another fun tool for night viewing can be found on 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.
