Star Tours

July 16, 2001

The crescent moon, Venus, Saturn and the bright star Aldebaran are gathered together Tuesday morning in a very pretty grouping. Look in the east between 3:30 a.m. and dawn.

Later that morning the moon covers Venus at 10:17 a.m. and uncovers it at 11:50 a.m. in an amazing sight through a small telescope.
