Catch the moon and Mars cozying up to each other on Thursday

Look to the southeastern sky in the early hours of Thursday (July 21) morning to see the waning crescent moon shining close to Mars. 

The pair will be close enough to share the field of view in a pair of binoculars. You’ll find the distinctive red dot of Mars just several finger-widths to the lower left (or 4 degrees to the celestial east-northeast) of the moon, according to astronomer Chris Vaughan of Astrogeo.ca, who prepares Space.com’s monthly Night Sky calendar in cooperation with Simulation Curriculum.
