1 Jun    The moon moves to Jupiter’s upper left tonight.

2 Jun    The waxing crescent moon is midway between Jupiter, 2 fist-widths to the lower right, and magnitude 1.3 Regulus, the same distance to the upper left.

3 Jun    Regulus is 4 finger-widths to the moon’s upper left this evening. The moon is about one-third illuminated. It is at apogee, 63.49 Earth-radii (405,000 kilometers) away.

4 Jun    Climbing higher in the west with each passing day, the waxing moon is now to Regulus’ lower left. Mars is far to the moon’s upper left.

5 Jun    Regulus is 2 fist-widths to the right or lower right of the first-quarter moon tonight. Mars is a little more than 2 fist-widths to the upper left.

6 Jun    The moon is high in the south as the sky darkens this evening. Magnitudes -0.4 Mars, 1.2 Spica, and 0.2 Saturn line up to the left. The moon will pass them, one by one, over the next few days.

7 Jun    The moon passes Mars, which is only 1 finger-width to the moon’s upper right tonight.
