young beltane moon

Today is Beltane.  This year the moon is near the Pleiades and also the star Aldebaran, 'the eye of the bull'.  The sightline to this star shows the direction of the Apex of the Local Group, to which the twenty four galaxies of the local group (to which our Milky Way galaxy belongs) are converging.

New Moon of 1 day and 19h.
