The Last Quarter Moon takes place today (NASA). Remember, a Last Quarter Moon looks like a half Moon.
Saturday, September 4th – Monday, September 6th 2021
The next several mornings you will be able to see the thin waning Moon (Sky & Telescope). You will also be able to see the constellation Leo and its bright star Regulus if you look to the East-Northeast about 30 minutes before sunrise (Sky & Telescope). The image below shows what to look for in the sky.
Additionally, after twilight Saturday night you will be able to see Venus in the West-Southwest (Sky & Telescope). The star Spica will also be visible, although much dimmer, to the lower left of Venus (Sky & Telescope).
