Moon and Jupiter (Aug 19-21)

I got home after a dinner party last night (Friday, August 19) and out the back porch (which faces east), there was a lovely pairing of the waning Moon and bright Jupiter below it. Keep an eye out for them this weekend (if the skies are clear). The Moon rises around midnight (later each day), and Jupiter will be above it and to the right in the eastern sky. And look how far the Moon moves every night relative to Jupiter’s position!
