2019 Moon-Planet Conjunctions

Post by Christopher K. » January 12th, 2019, 3:09 pm

This thread will cover most of the 2019 events wherein the Moon comes within nine degrees of a planet. "Loose" will be a conjunction with the components fewer than nine degrees apart, "Moderate" will be fewer than six degrees, and "Tight" will be fewer than three degrees.

12 January 2019, 8:22pm to 9:22pm CST
MODERATE: Moon-Mars


The two will be setting together in the west, the Moon in Cetus and Mars in Pisces. The 6.3-day-old Moon will have Mars to its right, the pair remaining fewer than six degrees apart the whole time. At 8:22pm the Moon will be thirty-five degrees up, and twenty-three degrees up at 9:22pm.

MODERATE: Moon-Jupiter

The two will be setting together in the west, the Moon in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Ophiuchus. The waxing crescent Moon will have Jupiter to its lower right, the pair remaining fewer than five degrees apart the whole time. At 6:34pm Jupiter will be twenty-four degrees up, and fifteen degrees up at 7:34pm. Happy Halloween!
