Catch a 26 Hour Old Moon Tonight!

The sky as it will appear tonight, thanks to Starry Night Pro.

Tonight, just after sunset, look due West and about 7 degrees up to see Venus and a 26 hour old Moon. True, while not within the lunar observer's Holy Grail status of sub-24 hours, a 26 hour old moon still isn't bad, and it will be relatively easy to spot thanks to it's partnering up with Venus, the third brightest object in the sky. So grab the binoculars and/or camera and head out to see the show-it's looking to be clear.
