Waxing Crescent Moon


AstronomyClark Planetarium encourages our visitors to step outside and observe the wonders of the night sky. On ‘Skywatch’ you will find a weekly-updated brief article on what to look for in the sky, or major astronomical events happening now. You will also find a calendar of eclipses, moon phases, equinox and solstice dates by clicking the ‘Night Sky Calendar’ link at left.

Bright passes of the International Space Station, the 4th brightest object in the sky (behind the Sun, Moon and Venus) are also updated weekly in the ‘Night Sky Calendar.’ Only passes that climb more than 20° above the horizon are listed.

Thanks for making us part of your backyard astronomy hobby. As always, your comments are welcome here.
