The Moon continues its trek towards the southern sky tonight, Sunday.  Look carefully and you will notice that our closest neighbour is now sandwiched between two bright stars.
The one on the right is planet Saturn, while the on to the moon’s far left is Spica, the lead star of the Virgo constellation.
