Moon Passes Regulus

17-18dec
   The waning gibbous Moon rises near the front feet of the constellation Leo the Lion and over the next couple of days the Moon approaches and then passes by Leo’s alpha star Regulus. If you are at the right location then at 18 UT on the 18th the Moon will be slightly less than 1o from Regulus.
   The animated graphic is set for 10 pm CST on December 18th and 19th.
