A Treat for your eyes in the sky

Highlight of the June Sky

It's worth getting up very early on June 6. Looking east in the predawn darkness, find the crescent Moon with the bright planet Jupiter hovering to its lower right.

For an extra treat, use binoculars to view the same scene, and you'll easily see the dim planet Uranus just above and very near Jupiter. You'll be in select company; few people have ever seen Uranus!
