Moon – Regulus Conjunction

   Tuesday evening January 22rd the 17-day old waning gibbous Moon will be about 2o from the heart of the ‘Lion’, the star Regulus in the constellation Leo the Lion. Regulus marks the bottom of the backward question mark shape of the head and chest of the Lion.

    Both the Moon and Regulus will easily fit within the field of view of binoculars.
