Calendar Discussion - Venus, Crescent Moon and Jupiter conjunction (UK: 31/01/2019 06:00)

Recommended Posts

At around 7am, the waning crescent Moon will be at 14 degrees above the horizon and between Venus and Jupiter.

Given some clear skies, this should make quite a spectacle. The 25 day old moon will be 17.8% illuminated, and about 4 degrees from Jupiter and 4.5 degrees from Venus. Well worth a look in binos or a widefield photo opportunity.

A timely reminder.  I already had it on my calendar, but it was useful to have the reminder as I don't look at it every day!  Thanks for posting :smile:
