Baja Night Skies This Week: Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Last night the crescent Moon was next to Venus in the western sky after sunset. In the next 24 hours, as it rises in the east and sets in the west, the Moon will travel about 12 degrees east to accompany Jupiter in tonight's sky.
While the planets rise in the east and set in the west due to the earth's daily rotation from west to east, they are actually traveling east in their orbits around the sun, just as the Moon is traveling east in its orbit around Earth.
The Moon demonstrates this tonight as it moves from Venus up to Jupiter to the east. Keep an eye on Venus. It is on a faster inside track around the sun. Jupiter is on a slower outside track, with planet Earth on a track between the two. As they both head east, Venus will catch up and pass Jupiter over the next few weeks.
If you are awake around 3am, look for Scorpius the scorpion standing on its tail in the SE sky, and the Southern Cross upright over the mountains directly south. The two major closest stars to our solar system, alpha and beta Centaurus, are just to the left of the base of the Cross. You can't see them from the US or Canada. Flares and the Space Station will return to our area next week.
