Moon near Aldebaran and Pleiades October 26

Tonight – October 26, 2018 – you’ll find the waning moon near two celebrities among the stars. They are the star Aldebaran and the Pleiades star cluster, also known as the Seven Sisters. Watch for this trio to rise an hour or more after sunset on this late October evening. Aldebaran will be the bright reddish star near the moon. The Pleiades will be a tiny, dipper-shaped cluster of stars near Aldebaran and the moon.

Bottom line: See the moon, Aldebaran and the Pleiades tonight, October 26, 2018.

The 2019 lunar calendars are here! Order yours before they’re gone. Makes a great gift.
