What's in the Sky
January 2, 2019
Happy New Year 2019! We have a great sight to start the New Year, on New Year's Day morning. The waning crescent Moon will lie low in the southeast, with bright Venus right below it, and Jupiter below and to the left of the pair. So jump out of bed at 7am and take in the sight. Of course, maybe you're NOT getting up early after celebrating the New Year. In that case, try Jan. 2. The crescent Moon will now be between Venus and Jupiter, also a very nice sight. Venus and the Moon will have another close conjunction at the end of the month, on the morning of Jan. 31.
Speaking of Jan. 31, some may remember that we had a lunar eclipse on that day last January. This year we'll have another Janua...
