Virgo Grabs the Moon

   Thursday evening June 25th the waxing gibbous Moon will be just out of reach from Virgo’s grasp, but still within about 3o from the bluish-white star Spica in Virgo the Maiden. This will make for an interesting binocular object as both will easily fit within the field of view of binoculars.
   Meanwhile Venus has moved within 3o from Jupiter. See some pictures of the planets and our Moon.


Caution: Objects viewed with an optical aid are further than they appear.
