You'll need a low to the western horizon view to see it, but try not
to miss tomorrow's view of moon and planets. Tomorrow is Wednesday
Look for the crescent moon and to the right of it, bright Venus.
You'll need a low western horizon to see the slender lunar crescent
and the planet tomorrow night. What lurks near Venus are two other
planets, but it will be challenge to see them.Try with binoculars,
but if you don't see them, at least you know they are there.

We made a slight change to our sidewalk astronomy schedule for
September. Monrovia Saturday Sept 6th, and Pasadena has been changed
from Sept 5 to Sept 12.
Now that school is back in session, moon and planet viewing nights in
Monrovia are a perfect setting for the family or the classroom.
