See the New Moon with Mercury this week

The New Moon of Adar will be visible on the evening on Thursday Feb 23 from about 5:30pm – 7:00pm.

Here are 3 diagrams showing the relative positions of the Moon, Mercury and Venus for Thu, Fri, Sat this week at about 6:15pm


On each evening Jupiter will be the next bright "star" just above Venus. So you can bag a peak at 3 planets at once!
