sky oct 9th
By Friday morning October the 9th, when the waning Moon poses with them, Mars and Jupiter are just 3.6° apart. Their conjunction will come on October 17th and 18th, 0.4° apart — with Venus nearing in!

In Friday’s early dawn the Moon forms a triangle with Jupiter and Mars, while Venus and Regulus now look on from above.
