The Moon and Mars in the Morning
If you are up about an hour before sunrise, as I am quite often, you will see something rather nice on the mornings of Friday 16 March and Saturday 17 March. On Friday morning, the Crescent Moon will be just above Mars (see diagram to left, click to enlarge), and on the 17th it will be just above Mercury. A very fine sight indeed.
