Moon & Jupiter meet in Libra

On April 30 the almost-full, waning gibbous moon is sweeping in front of the constellation Libra, where, it so happens, the dazzling planet Jupiter also resides.

Jupiter will be easily visible as it is the fourth-brightest celestial body to light up the heavens, after the Sun, the Moon and Venus.

Jupiter is fairly close to Libra’s two brightest stars, Zubenelgenubi and Zubeneschamali, on the great dome of the sky. Use Jupiter to more easily find these two modestly bright stars when the Moon moves out of the evening sky in another few days.
