Watch the half moon pass Mars in the sky tonight

The Moon and Mars will make a pleasant spectacle in the sky tonight.

According to the calendar and almanacs, Monday evening (February 27) brought us the first quarter. It is also sometimes referred to as a “half” moon, although as darkness falls across North America, a close look with binoculars or a small telescope will show that there is little more than half a moon. the sun shines. This is because the actual time of the first quarter usually occurs at the beginning of the day at 3:06 am EST or 12:06 pm PST (0806 GMT).
