Whats up tonight (and Tomorrow night)

The western horizon as seen at 6:00pm local time Wednesday July 25 from the southern hemisphere.

Tonight, if you look to the west from around 5:30 you will see a broad triangle formed by Venus, the star Regulus and Saturn. Not particularly special but rather pretty.

If you look to the east you can see the Moon near the red star Antares, just above Jupiter. Again rather nice.

If you are an early riser, on the morning of Thursday July 26 you can watch the Moon cover Antares around 3:oo am. This occultation is visible only in South Eastern Australia. Details and contact times are available here.
