  5. The Night Sky Tuesday, April 29 New Moon (exact at 2:14 a.m. on this date EDT). A partial eclipse of the Sun occurs for Australia, and the eclipse is annular on the horizon for a bit of Antarctica. Map and details.The thin waxing crescent returns to the evening sky, passing through Taurus. Wednesday, April 30 Can you see the hairline Moon yet in the west in twilight? It's about a fist-width to the lower right of Aldebaran for North American skywatchers. Binoculars will help. How about the departing Pleiades? Thursday, May 1 Look for Aldebaran now below the waxing crescent Moon in twilight. Farther to the Moon's left, Orion is sinking away. Friday, May 2 How soon after sunset can you see the first stars and planets coming out? The brightest is Jupiter. Look for it high in the west, almost two fist-widths at arm's length above or upper left of the Moon. The second brightest is Sirius, sinking in the southwest. Saturday, May 3 The waxing crescent Moon shines below Jupiter in the west at dusk. Above Jupiter are Pollux and Castor. Sky & Telescope
