2019, January 30; Moon, Jupiter, and Morning Star Venus


2019, January 30: The waning crescent moon that is 24.4 days old appears 6 degrees to the upper right of bright Jupiter. Venus is over 7 degrees to the lower left of Jupiter.

The waning crescent moon, bright Jupiter, and Morning Star Venus shine from the southeast on this wickedly cold morning.  The crescent moon (24.4 days old and 24% illuminated), overexposed in the image, is 6 degrees to the upper right of bright Jupiter.  Venus, rapidly moving eastward is over 7 degrees to the lower left of Jupiter.  The star Antares appears to the right of the planets.  Tomorrow morning, the moon is near Venus.
