Moon Passes Uranus


   In the hour or so before sunrise look southeast for the 22-day old 3rd quarter Moon to be within about 3o from Uranus. Both will fit within the field of view of binoculars however the big difference in apparent magnitudes (Moon: -12.0; Uranus: 6.0) and the closeness of the two will make seeing Uranus nearly impossible.
