    Pisces Sun / Virgo Moon

    Aloha Skywatchers, Looking up to this evenings sky we can observe the Moon rising (5;50 pm, Hawaii time), before the sun sets (6;25 pm hawaii time). If you happen to have a telescope you might be able to catch a glimpse of Mercury conjucting Neptune in Pisces.Look at where the Sun is setting, in the first degree of Pisces to view Mercury & Neptune in the middle degrees of Pisces.

    This Full Moon in Virgo is considered a super moon because it appears approximately 30 times larger then average,(according to Space.com).

    Tomorrow night (Feb 19), the Virgo supermoon will rise after the Sun sets (approximately 6:55pm Hawaii time). with clear skies it should be a spectacular celestial sight!
