Love to help but we average 365 nights of clouds around here. Haven't seen the moon in at least a month, might have disappeared for all I know!!!

Couldn't even bring it up on my telescope. Just had a blue ring around it and pink all in the middle. That's it.

We don't need any coordinates of where (she) is, we are all on earth and the moon is closer to earth than it is for at least 8 months out of the year, it should be bigger!!


Just to add, it also is NOT upside down.

Jupiter, Venus & Moon Line Up This Weekend: How to Watch Online
SPACE.com Staff
Date: 23 February 2012 Time: 02:47 PM E

Jupiter, Venus and the moon will line up in an impressive triple play this weekend, and skywatchers won't even have to venture outside to see it.

The three celestial bodies will be in close proximity to each other on the nights of Saturday and Sunday (Feb. 25 and 26), forming a skywatching treat known as a triple conjunction. The online Slooh Space Camera will webcast the action live, beginning at 9:30 p.m. EST both Saturday and Sunday (0230 GMT on Feb. 26 and 27).

I'm not sure what there was to figure out.

The OP's post:

Hmm, go outside and look.

Usually, isn't the bright star suppose to be near the moon? Hmm, now it looks like we have 2 bright stars. So, what planets are these this time?


It seems to me the OP was asking an odd question that didn't really make any sense, considering that the moon is not "usually" near any particular planet. The Moon rises a different time every night relative to the rest of the stars and planets in the sky, so the moon could be near a certain star or planet one day, and be near a totally different star or planet the next.

Add to that the fact that the planets themselves appear to move separately than the rest of the stars (although more slowly than the moon). Therefore, there are not planets and stars that could be said are "usually" near the moon -- that will change every night.

On that particular night -- February 23 -- the moon was just a very thin sliver of a young Moon, and had just set about the same time the OP was posted. Venus was still in the sky, and would have been setting about 1 1/2 hours later. However, 2 days later (on February 25), the Moon would be setting about 1 1/2 hours later than it did on the 23rd, and be a slightly bigger crescent located right next to Venus in the sky.
