Screen capture from the app SkySafari Pro showing the western sky with Leo the Lion, the crescent moon, venus and mars

Twilight in the western sky dazzles us with celestial wonders for the next few days!

Venus blazes brightly at -3.9 magnitude and nearby Mars is fading to 1.8 magnitude. The waxing crescent Moon steals the show on Sunday then exits left Monday and Tuesday.

Grab your binoculars and search for Regulus in Leo the Lion as the big cat leaps behind the mountains.
