2019, January 27: Morning Star Venus, Jupiter, and Antares


Brilliant Morning Star Venus shines from the southeastern sky this morning during twilight.  It is over 5 degrees to the left of Jupiter.  Venus passed Jupiter nearly a week ago and the gap widens each morning.  Venus is heading toward a conjunction with Saturn next month.

This morning Jupiter is nearly 9 degrees to the left of the star Antares that represents the “heart” of the Scorpion.

This morning, the Last Quarter moon is outside the frame, nearly 11 degrees to the left of the star Spica.  It is headed toward displays with Jupiter and Venus in a few days.
