A bit of heaven you may want to be up before sunrise for, from the 7th to the 9th. Looking in constellation Leo, the brightest star is the "tail", Regulus, as you can see. But first, right now I'm waiting to get a better predawn look at Saturn and Venus, with Regulus only 4 degrees from both planets, which will be a waking dream to see. This grouping is still "contracting" together. Can you see it, on the map in the upper right? On the 6th, the waning Moon will hang close to these 3 lights, then, several hours before sunrise on the 7th, in the Americas, Venus, Saturn and Regulus will all rise in a triangle that's only 6 degress long and very thin - with the crescent Moon hanging inside it!!
This celetial trio will last from the 9th to the 13th, being very compact on the 10th. It'll be startling. One thing happening for the first time in 10 years is that Saturn will be very much dimmer, because its rings have closed from edgewise, an unheard of 10 degrees, as I say for the first time in a decade. I wonder why ...
But all that matters is ths bright triangulation, showing off in perfect accord with the forceful lion - Leo.
