Astro Word of the Day
- Tuesday September 27, 2016 -
The Moon is entering Virgo and will soon join organized Mercury in Virgo. This is a great time to focus on a project that needs deliberate attention. Save the big concepts for another day . . . today and tomorrow are good for getting a lot of small things done. Try not to get distracted and you will succeed.
The Morning Sky
The next couple of days are great for viewing the predawn planets in the eastern sky, just above the horizon. Get up about 1/2 hour before the sunrise and you can see the small waning gibbous Moon and faint Mercury below it. You might need binoculars to see Mercury, but it will be worth it.
