May 7 Moon Goddess’ Current Phase

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

A Look at The Universe

Witch’s Broom in the Western Veil of the Veil Nebula

(Sorry I tried to make this picture bigger and it did not work. :o{ )

The New General Catalogue, an astronomical compendium of deep space objects, names this nebula NGC 6960. Its unofficial name is a touch more poetic: Witch’s Broom. Located in the Veil Nebula, it’s part of the remnants of a star 20 times the size of our sun that went supernova, exploding roughly 8,000 years ago. The long, slender filaments of the Witch’s Broom are part of an expanding blast wave from the supernova that’s shocking, heating, and transforming interstellar gasses as it goes. The bright spot at the nebula’s upper edge is the giant star 52 Cygni in the constellation Cygnus.
