The moon is directly above the constelllation Sagittarius late this evening. Although a centaur and an archer in traditional mythology. Sagittarius is compared to a teapot today. The moon, which rises at 7:36 p.m., is above the top of the teapot. The bright orange star to the right of the moon is Antares in Scorpius, and the bright, white star to the left is Altair in Aquila.
