If it’s clear where you are this evening, head outside around 8:45 PM and look for the Moon. Nearby, you’ll spot Aldebaran, the bull’s eye. Keep watching! Aldebaran will disappear behind the Moon right around 9 PM! The dark side approaches first, so it can be a bit tricky to see it disappear.

The star will reappear around 10:20 – 10:30.
