Moon and Planet Show

Shortly before dawn today, Venus, Saturn, the Moon and the bright star Regulus made a nice compact grouping in the Eastern sky.
Regulus is the brightest star in the constellation Leo.

On Tuesday morning, October 9, the moon will have moved down to the horizon, but Venus, Saturn and Regulus will assume their most compact grouping. They'll fit within a circle 4.5 degrees across and could be viewed together in many binoculars.
