The Moon, Mars and Spica, Sunday 6 June 2014
|Chart of tonight's sky at 22:00 ACST as seen from Adelaide, similar views will be seen at the equivalent local time (eg 22:00 AEST) elsewhere.||The Moon, Spica (left) Mards (above) and Saturn (far right) as seem from my backyard around 19:00 ACST. The blob down the bottom is an imaging artefact. Taken with my Canon IXUS 400 ASA 2 second exposure.||Close up of Moon, Mars and Spica 3X Zoom on the Canon IXUS as before.|
If you have clear skies at the moment go out right now, and look up in the north/north-western sky. There you will see Mars, the Last Quarter Moon and the bright star Spica all grouped in a lovely triangle. Go on, go out and have a look.
