Moon/Spica/Mars/Saturn Conjunction

Conjunction Between Moon and Mars

This evening there is an opportunity to view the thin waxing crescent Moon near the star Spica with Mars and Saturn nearby. This is the next to last conjunction with these three with the next one on the evening of September 19th. That one will have the Moon considerably closer to Mars, however the pair will be very low at local sunset time, and Saturn and Spica will not be visible as they set a little earlier then Mars and the Moon.
