See how the moon “jumps” over Uranus in the sky before dawn this week

Look at the eastern sky before dawn on Friday (June 24) and Saturday (June 25) and the moon will appear to have jumped over Uranus.

On Friday, “the old crescent will shine with a generous palm width in the upper left corner (or 6.5 degrees of the celestial southwest) of the small star with a magnitude of 5.8 Uraniumwrites Chris Vaughn, an amateur astronomer with SkySafari Software who runs Space.com’s Night sky calendar.
