After dark the Great Square of Pegasus is sinking down in the west, to the right of Venus and Mars. The Big Dipper is creeping up in the north-northeast.
Can you spot the fingernail-thin crescent Moon in twilight Friday night? It's less than two days old as seen after sunset from North America.
Before and during dawn Saturday morning, the thinning crescent Moon in the southeast is at the bottom of an arc that it now forms with Spica and Jupiter.
In twilight Friday evening, Saturn, Venus, and Antares form a nearly vertical, curving line low in the southwest. Watch the configuration change this week.

The "W" of Cassiopeia stands high in the northeast after dark. In the southwest at dusk, Saturn and Antares continue to pull farther to the right of Mars.
