Although the Full Moon offers targets, it’s still better to observe Earth’s natural satellite when the side facing us is receiving far less sunlight. So, in recent issues, I’ve written four other stories about lunar observing. Together, these articles should keep you observing the Moon no matter what phase it’s in.

Astronomy magazine subscribers can view the four stories for free.  Just make sure you're registered with the website.
