   This evening the 4.5 day old waxing crescent Moon will be about 4 degrees from the planet Saturn. Close enough such that both will fit within the field of view of typical binoculars.

   Before sunrise look east to see that Mars is still close to the Beehive Cluster and still within the field of view of binoculars.
