Sky Guy Viewing ALERT - Follow The Moon in the Morning Sky 1-8 to 1-10

Hey Space Placers!

Watch the motion of the Moon in the sky in the hour before dawn Tues-Thurs as the stars of summer form the backdrop.

Thursday morning will be the highlight as the very slim crescent Moon joins bright Venus low in the southeast sky.

It won't be until May that we see the "Evening Star" in the sky.
