   An hour or so before sunrise local time on Tuesday morning (29 October) the thin 24-days old waning crescent Moon will rise in between Jupiter and the star Regulus in Leo the Lion. If you have a good view that includes the north look to the left from the Moon for the familiar star patterns of the two dippers.
