And the Lion Leaped Over the Moon

   Monday and Tuesday mornings October 24th and 25th the Moon in its waning crescent phases is nearly pawed by Leo the Lion as the Moon passes past the heart of the Lion, the star Regulus. This animated graphic shows the sky for the pre-dawn mornings of the 24th and 25th and the position of the Moon on either side of Regulus.
