January 21 evening: Moon near Capella, Aldebaran and Betelgeuse
On January 21, 2024, the bright waxing gibbous moon will lie within a triangle formed by three bright stars. It’ll be near the fiery orange star Aldebaran of Taurus the Bull and Orion’s mighty red supergiant star Betelgeuse. The bright, golden star is Capella of the constellation Auriga the Charioteer. If you catch Capella low on the horizon, it may be flashing like a small disco ball. You can follow them all night until about an hour before dawn.
