Saturday morning June 1st watch for a very thin 27.5-day old waning crescent Moon to rise with the inner plane Venus. The Moon will be about 5o from Venus, and despite the Moon’s thin appearance its apparent magnitude of -9.0 will still outshine Venus apparent magnitude of -3.80. Nonetheless both should make a striking pair over the horizon before sunrise local time.
