Your Field Guide to Spotting Selene (Luna)

Selene's really not too hard to spot. All you have to do is go outside at night and look up. She'll be that big shiny thing in the sky that people call the moon. Well, the moon is actually the crown she wears on her head as she's driving her chariot across the sky. If you look really close, you'll see that her chariot is drawn by a team of long-maned horses or a team of white oxen. Selene herself has a set of white wings, and always throws on some silvery robes after she's done bathing in Oceanus. A moon goddess has to look good for that nightly chariot ride.
