Moon and Jupiter pair up again night of February 18

The moon and the dazzling planet Jupiter pair up for another prime time showing this Monday evening. If you saw the moon and Jupiter yesterday ? on Sunday ? you may notice that the moon has moved eastward relative to Jupiter and the background stars.

Everyone in the world?s Eastern Hemisphere ? Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand ? will see the moon and Jupiter closer together than we will in the Americas. In fact, as seen from the southern part of Australia and Tasmania, the moon occulted ? or covered over ? Jupiter earlier today.

Here are the moon and Jupiter, shortly after Jupiter re-emerged from the dark limb of the moon following this morning?s occultation (February 18, 2013). This photo comes to us from EarthSky Facebook friend Neil Fyffe in Perth in western Australia.
