I used to hate the moon. tt was the ultimate star destroyer for deep sky objects like nebulae and galaxies, and especially for rtg'teor observing, , a~. ,~'...-i causing an tdtra-clear night in the country to took more like a sky. lit by a large mem~tx)litan area. And then one day,when I was older, probably in *'~111~*" my forlies, ] decided to examine the moon more closely through a tele~ope, I discovered a wondrous land~ape that I11 spend some time discus.sing ne~t week. I also enjoy watching its rapid motion across the sky from night to light. Luna w.r~e s 26 of ts diameters each day (13 degrees), catching up to and passing bright stars and planets along its celestial path, All this happens during a period of a little less than a monflt. 27.3 days. the admiral period of t.una aronnd Ore F~axth. This week, the moon treks towards brilliant Jupiter,just to its right by five degrees on Friday and eight degrees to Jupiters left on Saturday. July I. Then slogging castward, Lana heads towards Saturn during the next three days, approaching the Harvest God by July 5. The tbllowing evening, the 96 pereem tit moon passcs over Saturn by less than three degrees low in the SE_ On July 9just after midnight. the full moon lights up rural landscapes bright enough to perceive colors and hike trails ex~~sed to the sky without flashlights as I have done numerous times dndng vacations in the Somhwest. In national parks like Bryce Canyon, mconJit hiking is encouraged by the Park st'fir. I volmueered at Bryce for two years and was given the of imaging its htxxkv.~laced land.,uaape by moordight. That was a wonderful experience with Luna following me eve _rywhere that I went as my trail companion. I have arm enjoyed observing the moon in a more subdued form when it is a thin crescent and embraced in earthshine, the old moon in the arms of the new. Farthshine is caused by the reflected sunlight of our planet mirroring from the portions of the moon that are not sunlit. You can duly catch earthshine when the moon is a thin crescent a.s the light of the old day fades into deep darkness. Tonight, and Monday evenings, June 25/26 are this months opportunities. Binoculars wilt help reveal more distinctly this ghostly sight. Fimdly, do not forget the oppotranity of seeing a n:.v moon when it hides the suu on August 21.
