Friday and Saturday evening August 28th and 29th the 9 to 10-day old waxing gibbous Moon will be passing by the outer planets Jupiter and Saturn. On Friday evening the Moon will be about 1-2o from Jupiter and by the same time Saturday evening the Moon will be about 6-7o from Saturn. On either of the evenings the Moon and a planet will fit within the field of view of binoculars.
