Look for the "Lunar S" - a feature that is comprised of the craters Kant, Kant E, and Mons Penck.  It is located near the larger crater Cyrillus (see large lunar chart here), and occurs prior to first quarter phase.  Use a small telescope at higher magnification, but don't use too much to avoid image breakdown.

The "S" shape is on it's side - see if you can spot it this evening, or perhaps in the months ahead.

(Hat tip to blobrana for this feature!)

The Nightlight

This blog includes what to see in the night and daytime skies, thoughts on telescopes, binoculars, and other astronomy observing accessories and equipment, plus my own occasional notes on objects I've seen and observed. Oh, and the random theater or other "my take on life" post. In other words, there is always something interesting. Check it out.
