Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Beta Scorpii on December 10th


If you go out before sunrise on Sunday, December 10, and look in the ESE, (binoculars will help a lot) you should see Mercury, Mars and Jupiter in a conjunction with the star Beta Scorpii. All four objects will fit in a 1.1° field of view. Sky and Telescope magazine’s “This Weeks Sky at a Glance” page has a write up near the bottom.
