The Moon and Pleiades
Tonight a bright gibbous Moon will be just under 3° from the Pleiades star cluster. The Moon will be 84% illuminated, bright, but the cluster is bright enough to be seen even against a bright Moon. As the Pleiades move to the west over coming months there will be a few more lunar conjunctions, with increasingly smaller crescents.
