In the early hours of Friday the 22nd of July the planet Mars

will be to the right & slightly above a 36% lit waning crescent  Moon

the apparent separation distance will be 4° this paring will rise above the NE-E horizon

from 00.40 hrs and continue to clime into the sky until approx 02.45hrs

as the approaching daylight will start to obscure both bodies

this event should be well placed by 01.40hrs

if you do plan to observe / image this event remember to dress for the conditions
