New Year, New Moon & Last Chance to See Venus

January Sky Chart

By Rod Kennedy

It is a rare event for a new year to begin with a new moon. Yet as 2014 begins, so does a new lunar cycle. The moon will be in its new phase on January 1st, which means it will be in the same part of the sky as the sun. This doesn’t mean the moon will cover the sun, it just means that the lighted half of the moon is opposite the side we can see from Earth and therefore isn’t visible in a bright daylight sky.
