Around the Sky in 28 Days – Day 12

In a few nights the Moon will be not only be Full but will be in conjunction with Jupiter (and even much fainter Uranus). Till then watch as the Moon creeps closer to brilliant Jupiter every night.

Tonight the Moon is among the faint stars of Aquarius. Even under the darkest sky, the constellation of Aquarius is not much to look at. From most bright sites, few if any of its stars will be visible with a nearly Full moon in the way.
