Peering to the right of the Sun – that is, being out on the morning side of our spinning planet – is still the way to see planetary activity.
We see Mercury hovering in the foreground; beyond it, Venus speeding in its fall toward the far side of the Sun. In the extreme background is Pluto; and in the extreme foreground the Moon comes past – the Moon in its Old stage, becoming an ever more slender C.
The result is a bunch of conjunctions: Venus-Pluto Feb. 6, 0h Universal Time (which in eastern America is 7 PM on Feb. 5); Moon-Pluto Feb. 6, 6h; Moon-Venus Feb. 6, 7h; Moon-Mercury Feb. 6, 16h.
And two “trios,” in which three of these four bodies find themselves within 5-degree-wide circles: Mercury-Venus-Pluto, most concentrated at Feb. 5, 23h; and Moon-Venus-Pluto, tightest at Feb. 6, 7h.
But those are only trios, and only of any kind of interest, if you count Pluto, which you can’t see! Whether to “count” Pluto, in this and other context, may forever remain a sore point.
There’s more likelihood of being able to see the Moon if you’re out before dawn tomorrow, Feb. 5, when it will be more than 3 days before New. The next morning, when it is down among those planets, it will have little more than 50 hours of “life” left and will be that much slimmer and harder to see.
