Astronomy Tonight: The Moon and Jupiter

Astronomy star chart of the moon, Jupiter & Sagittarius
Look for the moon in the early evening. The bright "star" to its upper right is the planet Jupiter.

Take a look at the stars surrounding the moon. They form a familiar teapot shape. This asterism is the easiest way to identify the constellation Sagittarius. The moon is in the teapot's handle.
