Moon Meets Mars

    Sunday, December 6th the 25-day old waning crescent Moon will rise between Mars and the star Spica a couple of hours before local time for sunrise. Then tomorrow, the 7th the Moon will be near Venus and Comet Catalina (C/2013 US10).
    The comet is not really as bright as the graphic suggests but it is visible with binoculars in dark skies.

Stay tuned!

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