Moon-Jupiter-Mars Conjunction

   Thursday morning January 11th the 24-day old waning crescent Moon will be a few degrees away from the outer planets Jupiter and Mars. Also becoming visible over the eastern horizon are the planets Mercury and Saturn – as this graphic shows.

   The conjunction between the Moon, Jupiter, and Mars will be close enough so that all three will fit within the field of view of binoculars.
