Subtitle: Get Up At 5 Am This Week
The Moon is going to glide past Jupiter, Saturn and Mars in the hours before sunrise on Tuesday 4/14, Wednesday 4/15, and Thursday 4/16. At 5 am on Tuesday, the Moon will be 7° 45’ from Jupiter. Closest approach to Jupiter actually happens Tuesday evening but will not be visible for us here in the US.
However, after gliding past Jupiter, by 5am Wednesday morning the Moon will be 3° 10’ from Saturn.
By 5 am on Thursday, the Moon will have slipped past Mars, but will still be only 3° 30’ away from it.
So if your “sheltering in place” somewhere with a good southeastern view, and are inclined to get up just before 5 am; go out and take a look…
