The Moon reappears and climbs past four planets.
It passed Mars and Mercury on May 18 and 19, but Mars was then only 8 degrees from the Sun and Mercury 15. Now it will go about 8 degrees south of Venus on May 21, and 5 degrees south of Jupiter on May 24.
In the picture, the positions for the Moon are for eastern America (at the same time in the evening for Europe the Moon will have been 5 hours back along its path). The “+” figures are the “age” of the Moon – the number of hours since it was New.
