Egypt News | Science and technology / regularity of the moon, Jupiter and Saturn in a wonderful landscape at dawn tomorrow


Tomorrow, Monday, in the sky of Egypt and the Arab world, the regularity of the moon with my planets (Saturn and Jupiter), in the eastern horizon, will be observed in a beautiful view, seen with the naked eye before sunrise.Dr. Ashraf Tadros, a professor at the National Institute for Astronomical and Geophysical Research – said in a statement to the Middle East News Agency today – that this phenomenon can be seen starting from approximately three and a half in the morning for a period of 4 days.

He added that when the morning twilight intensifies as a result of the sunrise, we will not be able to see this scene, explaining that the moon will be closest to Saturn and will be associated with it at dawn on Tuesday, just as the moon is coupled with Jupiter, the day after tomorrow, Wednesday.

For his part, Engineer Majed Abu Zahra, head of the Astronomical Society in Jeddah, explained – in today’s statement – that since the moon always moves day after day eastward, in the direction of sunrise, with respect to the stars and planets in the zodiac, it will apparently pass near Saturn and then Jupiter in Coming days.

He pointed out that Jupiter and Saturn are currently located in front of the constellation Capricorn, and they are also heading east in front of the stars in the zodiac, but much more slowly than the moon, while it takes about 27 days for the moon to make a full circle in front of the zodiac, but Jupiter takes 12 years Saturn is 30 years old.
