Gemini Gems, Morning Jupiter Sports Spots, the Moon Slides Over a Star and Meets Prominent Planets, Mars Sees the Seven Sisters!

(This image of the Eskimo Nebula in central Gemini was taken by Adam Block in 2015 using a very large telescope at the Mount Lemmon SkyCenter near Tucson, Arizona. His website of astro images is here.)
(Close approach of the Moon and Jupiter. The Moon will be 21 days old.)
(This week, reddish Mars will occupy the western early evening sky for a few hours after dusk. Over the next two weeks, Mars’ eastward motion will carry it past the beautiful Pleiades Cluster in Taurus.)
(Jupiter and its moons.)
