Pale Sun Crescent Moon is a 1993 album by Cowboy Junkies.

It is generally viewed as the band's best 1990s work. As with all of the band's albums since 1988's The Trinity Session, however, it was only a modest success outside of the band's native Canada. Canadian guitarist Ken Myhr appears on every track on this album.

It was the band's last album of new material for RCA Records, although a live album and a greatest hits compilation were subsequently released on the label.
