The Moon, Mars, Saturn and Spica

A nice conjunction of a crescent Moon, Mars, Saturn and the bright star Spica will grace the evening sky tonight. All four will be within 12° of each other. The two planets and the star will all be about 1st magnitude, with the Moon showing about 37% illuminated.

The same quartet will get together again next month, for an even tighter grouping.
