Wednesday morning, 7th October had a spectacular line-up of the moon and bright planets Venus and Jupiter in the east before dawn. Thursday morning was even better. The waning crescent moon was closer to Venus, which is the sky’s brightest planet. The second-brightest planet, Jupiter, was close too on Thursday. A short hop below the moon and Venus, and we’ve added a third planet to the view. Mars is much fainter than the other two worlds, but you can spot it, if you look. Plus if you’re up before dawn, look for the star Regulus close to Venus.
