Daily cosmobite: Jupiter and the Moon

21_Jupiter and the Moon_Nick LombEarly risers can see the giant planet Jupiter in the northern sky before dawn. Although much further from the Sun and the Earth than bright Venus, Jupiter currently appears only a little fainter. Tomorrow morning the gibbous Moon is above and to the left or west of Jupiter, while on Saturday morning it is still above but to the right or east.
