Crescent Moon and Pleiades, Wednesday April 9

The western evening sky an hour after sunset, as seen from Australia.

On the early evening of Wednesday, April 9, The crescent Moon will be not far from the delightful Pleiades cluster. This will be best observed around an hour after sunset, when the sky is dark enough to see the Pleiades properly. However, they will be fairly close to the western horizon, so choose a clear, level spot to observe from.
