Mercury, Moon and Spica
Over the next few days we will see Mercury, the Moon, Spica and Jupiter do some cool things.
On Sunday 24th, the thin crescent Moon forms a triangle with Mercury and Spica. On Tuesday 26th the crescent Moon is near Jupiter. Over the week Spica and Mercury come closer, being closest (a fingerwidth apart) on Wednesday and Thursday (27th. 28th).
