Moon in Conjunction with Jupiter

   Wednesday morning, March 7th, before sunrise local time look toward the southern horizon for the 19-day old waning gibbous Moon and the planet Jupiter. Both are about 2-3o from each other as the graphic shows and will easily fit within the field of view of binoculars. Further eastward and lower to the horizon are the planets Mars and Saturn.
