From Spica to Venus

   Thursday morning December 10th the 25-day old waning crescent Moon will be passing by the blue-white star Spica in the constellation Virgo the Harvest Maiden, coming within about 5o from Spica.

   Over the next two days the Moon will continue moving eastward and waning to an increasingly thin crescent shape. On the morning of the 12th the even thinner crescent Moon will be about 3o from the brightly shining inner planet Venus.
   New Moon is on the 14th just in case you were wondering.
