Jupiter and the Moon are going to share the southern sky during the early morning hours the next few days. If you are up before dawn look south-east for the waning Moon and bright Jupiter. On the 17th the two will have a close encounter that should be a pretty sight for the naked eye or through binoculars.
In 2005 I began writing a column for the San Francisco Waldorf School newsletter called "The Urban Astronomer." I started this blog in 2007 as a place to archive my articles and to offer additional insights on the night sky - even if you live in a big city. In 2008 I became an occasional guest on the KFOG Morning Show, and more recently on KALW and KGO. Archived shows are posted on the blog.
