The waxing gibbous moon is near the planet Saturn tonight. You can find them in the southeastern sky after sunset, in the constellation Scorpius. Well, technically, they’re not in Scorpius, but above it, within the borders of the constellation Ophiuchus, right about where he’s latching on to a big snake named Serpens - down near the tail, according to most star charts. Ophiuchus is usually depicted as a big guy wearing a toga and holding a snake – he’s actually a mythical doctor, it’s a long story. Okay – Ophiuchus is not the guy’s name, that’s his title, which means, “serpent bearer.” His actual name is Asclepius, and those in the medical profession still swear by Asclepius when they take the Hippocratic oath. The snake is a symbol of restored health, as it rejuvenates when it sheds its skin; and in the old days, snakes roamed free in sick rooms, so when you got out of bed you had to watch where you stepped. Anyway, Saturn is just a few degrees to the south, or below the moon this evening.
