Moon – Regulus Conjunction

   Thursday morning September 26th, before the Sun rises, watch for a thin 27-day old waning crescent Moon to be about 2-3o from the ‘heart of Leo the lion, the star Regulus.

   Both Regulus and the Moon will easily fit within the field of view of binoculars, and the pair should make an interesting comparison of apparent magnitudes. The waning crescent Moon with a -10.0 apparent magnitude and Regulus with 1.34 apparent magnitude.
