5 Oct    The moon rises less than 2 hours before sunset and is high in the southwest by midnight. More than 80 percent of the moon’s surface is illuminated.

6 Oct    The moon is at perigee, 56.83 Earth-radii (362,000 kilometers) away.

8 Oct    A total lunar eclipse will be visible for much of the U.S. before dawn as Earth’s shadow covers the full moon.

10 Oct    Rising less than 2 hours after sunset, the waning gibbous moon is high in the east by midnight. You may need binoculars to see the Pleiades Cluster is 1 fist-width to the left.

11 Oct    The moon rises 2½ hours after sunset and is followed a few minutes later by magnitude 1.1 Aldebaran. By midnight, they have climbed higher in the east with Aldebaran 1 finger-width to the moon’s lower left. The Pleiades Cluster is 1 fist-width above the moon.
