Whatever Weds. Waning Moon Conjunction

Copyright ©2022 Deborah M. Zajac. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

I’ve been hoping for a clear sky before sunrise in order to see the Waning Moon and four early-dawn planets, but we’ve been having cloudy overcast mornings of late. On the 26th I got somewhat lucky even though it was cloudy. Here are 3 of the 4 early-dawn planets along with the Waning Crescent Moon over the Pine Nut Mountains. Following that line of planets up above Mars was Saturn, but it was already so light out I couldn’t see it.

Waning Crescent Moon under Mars, Venus with Jupiter close to Venus.

If you’re up an hour before sunrise your time this Saturday morning looking low in the southeast Venus and Jupiter, the two brightest objects in the sky after the Sun and Moon, are going to be spectacularly close at just a 1/2 degree apart!

Can you believe we’re just days away from May!? This month just flew by! I hope your week is going well and you have a lovely day.

  1. A lovely view of the moon over the hills, Deborah! For sure April has flown by with me prepping for an art workshop this Saturday. Have a great weekend:)

  2. Hoping for lovely Spring weather Deborah. The year has been fleeting away, partly due to Covid lock-downs for us and now finally we come out of having Covid and start to put the new normal back together. Enjoy your week my friend.
