Crescent Moon Near Two Planets

moon-ani   This evening, Saturday 27 September, the waxing crescent Moon will be about 0.10o away from the dwarf planet Ceres, and about 1o away from the planet Saturn. In some locations of the world ranging from East Asia and Japan to Hawaii the crescent Moon will be seen to occult, pass in front of, Ceres. A few hours later as the Moon has moved east the Moon will be seen to occult Saturn in locations across the South Pacific Ocean.
