See Jupiter close to a crescent moon (Mars near Saturn, too) in the ‘View a Planet Day’ night sky

AstronomySee Jupiter close to a crescent moon (Mars near Saturn, too) in the 'View a Planet Day' night sky


In an unofficial sense, I would like to dub today (April 10) as “View a Planet Day.” 

In the early morning hours will be two planets that will appear very close to each other and then later that same day, in the early evening sky we’ll have a chance to see Jupiter hovering near to a slender waxing crescent moon, making for a rather eye-catching sight. And there will be other celestial objects out there to see and find as well among the brightest planets in the night sky.
