5 The Night Sky Sky & Telescope Tuesday, November 5 In twilight, look southwest for the waxing crescent Moon with Venus more than a fist-width at arm's length to its left, as shown here. Wednesday, November 6 Venus and the crescent Moon are closest this evening. Look for them in the southwest as twilight fades. Thursday, November 7 The bulge of the crescent Moon points sunward — but not quite down to Venus in evening twilight. The Moon is currently 5° north of the ecliptic, while Venus is 4° south of it. (In fact, Venus is at its farthest-south declination, –27° 10′, since 1930!) Friday, November 8 Using binoculars shortly after dark, look a little to the upper left of the nearly first-quarter Moon (as seen from North America). There will be Alpha and Beta Capricorni, two wide binocular double stars. Alpha is easy to resolve and can even be split with the naked eye if you have sharp vision. Beta, with its closer, fainter secondary star (just west of the primary) is tougher in binoculars. Saturday, November 9 First-quarter Moon (exact at 12:57 a.m. EST Sunday morning). The Moon shines at nightfall this evening about midway between Altair far to its upper right and Fomalhaut far to its lower left. It's just above the dim pattern of Capricornus.
