The Moon will be just 2.5 days old, so it will show a very spectacular sharp crescent, with a marvelous Earthshine. The Pleiades will be gently shining 4 degrees away, adding their elegance to the show.

The Virtual Telescope Project will bring to you this beautiful meeting, sharing the view in real-time from Italy.

The online, free session is scheduled for 22 Apr. 2023, starting at 19:00 UT.

In case of bad weather, the event will be cancelled.
