The Moon and Mars, Sunday morning

The north-eastern sky as seen from the southern hemisphere two hours before sunrise.

If you are an Australian, what better way to celebrate Mothers day but to show your mum the crescent Moon and Mars close together (or mum, you can show your kids as a mothers day treat).

While you're there, if you have 10x50 binoculars, look for rapidly fading comet Encke in Cetus, and the asteroid Vesta over the other side of the sky near Jupiter.
