Moon in Conjunction with Spica, then with Jupiter


   This evening, May 25th the 10.5-day old waxing gibbous Moon will be about 6-7o from the blue-white star Spica in Virgo the Harvest Maiden. Then, over the next 2 nights the Moon will continue moving eastward and will pass by the planet Jupiter. The Moon will be about 8-9o to the east west from Jupiter on the 26th, and less then 5o east from Jupiter on the 27th.
