Moon/Jupiter/Venus conjunction

Recommended Posts

[move]*ON 6 SEPTEMBER 2005*[/move]

Jupiter passes 1.8 degrees North of the Crescent Moon. For western observers this will occur in full daylight, but will still make a beautiful sight in the West-southwest after shortly after sunset. To make it even nice, Venus is a few degrees to the upper left, and the star Spica is directly below that.

The Moon occults (eclipses) Spica about 6 hours later, and Venus 9 hours later, but this will not be visible from North America. The occultation of Spica can be seen from parts of Siberia, and that of Venus from parts of Southern Africa and Antarctica.
