Hey, Sky Fans! Happy new year! Shazbot! I almost forgot about this month’s primary #Moon phases! So, before it’s too…

Things are tough this year… Let’s spend Thanksgiving apart… together, and get some help from Orion!
What the what? It’s November? Well, if you say so. Here’s the primary #Moon phases for November 2020!
Last Quarter: November 8
New Moon: November 15
First Quarter: November 22
Full Moon: November 30
The Moon and Mars will look like they’re seriously close together tonight. Though… not like in that hoax from a few weeks ago.
