Mars-Jupiter


The two will be rising together in the east, in the constellation Libra. The 20.7 day-old Moon will be forty-nine degrees away in Virgo.

This conjunction is not to be missed. The two planet will remain less than a quarter-degree apart. At 3:58am Mars will be fifteen degrees up, and thirty degrees up at 5:28am.

Below is the NOAA forecast for 5am tomorrow...
precipitation potential, 1%
sky cover, 42%
relative humidity, 73%

surface wind, E 14 km/h
