Jupiter/Moon Conjunction

   Saturday evening June 3rd the 9.3-day old waxing gibbous Moon will be within 1-2o from the giant planet Jupiter. Both will very comfortably fit within the field of view of binoculars. Both rise in the east (except on Venus) at about 3 pm CDT and will be over the southern horizon a couple of hours before midnight local time.
