Saturday's new moon signaled the start of a new lunar cycle. Our closest neighbor in space is now moving east, away from the sun, and an incredibly thin and delicate crescent moon can be seen low in the west-northwestern sky, alongside beacon-like Venus and fainter Mercury.
Tonight, Venus will sit about 8 degrees to the right of the thin crescent and only 8 degrees above the horizon. Venus is the brightest and closest of the two planets to the horizon. However, you may need binoculars to spot fainter Mercury in the bright evening twilight. The "iron planet" sits about 5 degrees to the upper left of Venus. By Tuesday evening, the thin crescent will have moved about 15 degrees to the east of the two inner planets.
The waxing moon will continue to travel east through the ecliptic and zodiac this week. The 5-day-old crescent will pass 6 degrees below Leo's brightest star Regulus on Friday, before reaching first quarter phase in Virgo on Sunday.
