The Moon passes Venus on the route down
toward the New Noon situation of June 23/24 – about which there will be more to say.
The Moon is to the right of Venus on the morning of the 20th. The next morning, it has passed Venus and has 65 hours to go till New.
In our picture, the narrowing (“decrescent”) Moon is shown at twice its real size. The little disk of Venus (at 150 times true size), by contrast, is gibbous (becoming fatter) but also becoming gradually smaller, because the planet is on its long journey around to where it will be “full,” at superior conjunction behind the Sun early next year (January 9).
