The waning crescent moon and Mars shine from the eastern sky this morning as seen from the Chicago area. (Click the image to see it larger.)  During the month Mars has moved through the constellation Leo (with Denebola and Regulus) and into Virgo.  This morning Mars and the moon are about 6 degrees apart.

Meanwhile, bright Jupiter shines from the western sky among the stars of Gemini.  In this view, the star Procyon (Canis Minor) is nearby.  Jupiter and Mars are nearly 65 degrees apart.
