Not content with merely helping us spot Regulus earlier this month, the moon continues its guided tour of the night sky with a stop near Jupiter and Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo. The best view will be in the southwestern sky at dawn tomorrow. Because, of course, it will be.
If this keeps up, I may have to rename this series the Predawn Sky Watch. Or even more accurately, the Stupid O’Clock Sky Watch. Can we please have an astronomical event at a reasonable hour next time?
