Moon-Antares: Tonight 16-17June
Good day.

There will be a close approach (appulse) of the nearly full Moon and the bright 1st magnitude star Antares tonight. They will be visible close-by for as long as they are above the horizon.
For those in SA there will be an occultation. vis-

After sunset look roughly SE to find the Moon. The bright star close-by is Antares. They will stay close together until they set.

Have fun.

Here are some times and centre-to-centre separations in degrees for selected cities at time of closest approach (+/- 10 minutes):

city_________date______time___degrees
nyc:_______2008Jun17___6:10___1.027
atlanta:___2008Jun17___5:40___0.999
miami:_____2008Jun17___6:10___0.923
chicago:___2008Jun17___5:20___1.051
dallas:____2008Jun17___4:40___0.971
boise:_____2008Jun17___4:00___0.952
denver:____2008Jun17___4:20___0.985
la:________2008Jun17___3:50___0.852
seattle:___2008Jun17___4:00___0.948

For comparison: the Moon's diameter is 0.5 degrees.

The dates and times are UT. To convert to local:

EDT subtract 4 hours
CDT subtract 5 hours
MDT subtract 6 hours
PDT subtract 7 hours

Have fun.

You're welcome.

I would never reveal NtK information, however.

Have fun.

I do not know without seeing it. A cold front coming through perhaps?

Infobump.

It looks to be just as predicted.
Have a view if you've clear skies. Binoculars are helpful.

Oh, by the way, the Moon is *exactly* where it should be.
QED.

Have fun.

Cloudy skies here, damnit :(
Reality is interesting enough.

Yes, Jupiter is supposed to look like a planet. It's about 40° eastward from the Moon and lower to the horizon. Depending on the quality of your scope you should see the main atmospheric bands of yellow/orange. Strung out to the right you may be able to make out the 4 classical moons of Jupiter - Io, Callisto, Europa, and Ganymede.

Use only enough power to maintain a *clear* view. An high magnification blur is not as useful as a lower magnification sharp image.

Have fun.
