The Moon is about to glide past Jupiter and the Seven Sisters

There are a series of very interesting sights to be seen in the south west between March 13th and 15th. All are visible to the naked eye and I am sure there will be lots of opportunities for people to take lots of photographs. As long of course as the sky is clear.

On March 13th the crescent moon will be just below and to the left of Jupiter. The biggest planet in the solar system, Jupiter is that bright white dot that can be seen in the south western sky.

The following night March 14th the Moon will be above Jupiter and just below the Pleiades or Seven Sisters. The Pleiades is a cluster of stars moving together through space. Again this is low in the south west. Finally on March 15th the Moon will be seen  above the Seven Sisters.
