Watch the sky: Moon moved by Jupiter, Saturn.



GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – Every morning to Thursday, look up to see the moon passing by the two largest planets in our solar system.

Moon phases are moved by Jupiter and Saturn. Look to the southeast before sunrise to see all three. The moon is to the right of Saturn Monday and is lower than Saturn Mars. On Wednesday you can look over the moon to find Jupiter. The moon will be to the lower left of the two planets on Thursday morning.

The Moon will help you find Jupiter and Saturn on this week’s morning. But you will also have a chance to see Mars and Uranus in the evening. Mars will be visible to the west after dark and Uranus will set to the west after sunset.

The International Space Station passed through West Michigan last week, Jim and Pam Brower saw it zooming into Wyoming:
