Tonight's Sky for February 6: Moon Meets Mercury and Venus

This morning, there will be quite a sight in the predawn sky as the Moon will form a triangle with the two inferior planets: Venus, third brightest object in the sky, and Mercury, closest planet to the Sun. To see the show, go out about 30 minutes before sunrise and look low in the Eastern sky. The Moon and Venus should be easy to spot. As for Mercury, optical aid in the form of binoculars will be useful here.
