Moon – Spica Conjunction

   Friday February 22nd the 18-day old waning gibbous Moon will be about 6-7 o from the blue-white star Spica in the constellation of Virgo the Harvest Maiden. Both easily fit within the field of view of binoculars. Both the Moon and Spica rise a few hours before midnight local time and set a couple of hours after sunrise local time.
