Did you miss the 27-day old thin waning crescent Moon conjunction with Venus this past Monday morning? I did!
Well there is an opportunity to see the thin crescent Moon on this side of new phase this Thursday evening January 14th. The 1.7-day young waxing crescent Moon will be over the western horizon in a line-up of sorts with Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn all angled downward toward the western horizon. From Saturn to the Moon will span about 13o with Mercury, about 3-4o to the west, (down to the right) being the closest of the 3 planets.
This animated graphic is set for 2-minute intervals starting at 5:30 pm CST.
