The first quarter moon can be found high in the southern sky after sunset tonight. It appears above the head of the constellation of Orion the Hunter, who in Greek mythology, was the son of the sea god Poseidon. Orion loved Artemis, the goddess of the moon and also of the hunt. Now Artemis had a brother, Apollo, the sun god, and he didn’t like Orion – not good enough for his sister, he decided. One day while Orion was swimming in the ocean, Apollo found his sister and pointed to Orion, who appeared as just a little dark speck way out at sea.
