The Moon, Jupiter, and Saturn will form a wide triangle tomorrow morning.  The two gas giants will both be about 8 degrees from the 44%-illuminated waning crescent Moon.

This morning solid clouds when I left for work at 4:30 cst.   When I arrived at work and looked up the clouds had parted and left an opening to view the triad.  It was a wonderful sight seeing Jupiter, Saturn and the Moon form a nice triangle.  Within minutes the opening had closed up and had solid clouds again.  The astronomy gods must have been looking down on me. lol.gif   Clouds forecast for the rest of the day.
