Last night’s moon, planet Mars, star Spica

Cath Cooper – and others in EarthSky’s community – caught last night’s beautiful waning gibbous moon, red planet Mars and blue-white Spica, brightest star in Virgo.

Moon, Mars and Spica on the evening of March 17, as captured by Cath Cooper in the U.K.  Thank you, Cath!

Thank you all for your posts on EarthSky Facebook and at EarthSky Photos on Google+!

It’s almost the best time in two years to see Mars.

Miss them last night? The moon will be near Mars and Spica on the night of March 18, too.
