2016: Venus and Moon, March 7


ven_lune_160307

As brilliant Venus slowly fades into the sun’s brilliance, the moon passes close by on the morning of March 7. Venus now rises less than an hour before sunrise, appearing low in the southeast as the morning sky brightens. The moon stands 3 degrees to the upper left of Venus.  Find a viewing spot with a clear view of the horizon so see this grouping of Venus and the moon.
