30 Jan    With only 15 percent of its surface illuminated, the moon rises 2½ hours before the sun. To get a glimpse, you’ll need to look low in the southeast early this morning. Venus is 3 finger-widths to the moon’s upper right.

2 Feb     Today is Groundhog Day.

3 Feb     New moon at 0231 UT

5 Feb     The moon sets less than 3 hours after the sun tonight. Look low in the west at dusk to see the waxing crescent moon 1½ fist-widths to Jupiter’s lower right. Only 5 percent of the moon’s surface is illuminated.
