On Sunday afternoon, the Last Quarter Moon will arrive at 12:34 p.m. Look for the half moon Sunday night.

Monday night, the Red Planet will meet up with the twins. Gemini and Mars will be in the western sky around 9:00 p.m. Just below and right of the two will be Mercury, hanging low in the horizon.

The moon will meet up with the planet Venus late in the week. On Saturday morning, Venus and the moon can be found low in the sky in the east. Get a clear view of the horizon and look at around 6:00 a.m. to find the pair. Happy hunting!
