If you're looking for the moon, you won't be able to see it tonight. That's because the moon is entering the new moon phase, during which the half of its surface that faces the Earth will be in complete darkness.
The moon appears in four main phases over a period of 29.5 days, starting with the new moon, growing to the first quarter moon (in which the moon is half-lit), then growing to the full moon, and finally shrinking down to the last quarter moon (in which the moon is also half-lit).
This cycle is due to the position of the moon, the Earth, and the sun. The moon does not emit its own light but instead reflects the light from the sun, so when the moon is between the Earth and the sun, its illuminated face is facing the sun, while the face that we see is dark. The full moon, on the other hand, occurs when the Earth is between the moon and the sun, allowing us to see the full illuminated face. (And when the positioning of the three celestial bodies is just right, given the moon's tilted orbit, we end up with solar and lunar eclipses.)
While you won't be able to see the moon tonight, the dark skies are perfect for stargazing, since the moon will not be polluting the night sky with its reflected sunlight. That gives you a chance to see some fainter celestial objects — so long as you get away from manmade light pollution!
While you're out, make sure to locate and enjoy the Winter Triangle. This asterism, or grouping of stars, is formed by the three brightest visible stars of the season: Sirius, Betelgeuse and Procyon. If you can locate the Winter Triangle, from there you can spot their respective constellations: Canis Major, Orion, and Canis Minor.
At sunset, look to the southeast to spot the Winter Triangle. It might be easiest to locate well-known Orion, from which you can find Betelgeuse. It is the second brightest star in the constellation and forms the Hunter's right shoulder.
Jupiter and Venus are excellent objects of interest this month in the western skies, and the two planets are in fact moving closer together throughout February before meeting up on March 1. Catch them early, though; the pair set fairly early in the evening. Mars is also still fairly bright throughout the month.
If you're an experienced skywatcher with a large telescope, there is also a comet making what could be its first and only pass by the sun, which could make for a challenging but fascinating target in the moonless sky.
