Jupiter and the waning crescent moon shine from the eastern sky this morning at 6:30 a.m. CDT as seen from the Chicago area. This morning they are about 1.5 degrees apart.

Notice the “Earthshine” on the night portion of the moon.  Sunlight reflects from our planet and gently illuminates the lunar night.

This morning the star Gamma Virginis is about 1.5 degrees from Jupiter.
