Waning Crescent Moon Near Saturn

   Wednesday morning January 3rd before sunrise local time the 24-day old waning crescent Moon will be within a few degrees from Saturn and a few more degrees from the reddish star Antares in Scorpius the Scorpion. Keep an eye on the Moon over the next few days as it continues its downward slide along the ecliptic.
