See the moon swing past Jupiter in Tuesday morning’s sky

The moon continues its monthly planetary tour with a brief visit to Jupiter between midnight and dawn on Tuesday (July 19). 

During these wee hours, the half-illuminated moon will shine several finger widths below (or 3 degrees to the celestial southeast of) the bright dot of Jupiter, according to astronomer Chris Vaughan of Astrogeo.ca (opens in new tab), who prepares Space.com’s monthly Night Sky calendar in cooperation with Simulation Curriculum.
