We’re expecting clear skies in Chicagoland this evening for a spectacular grouping of a relatively large Full Moon with Saturn and Spica. See my Full Moon diagram for comparison with other Full Moons: www.CurtRenz.com/moon
The CDT timings given here are for the Adler Planetarium, but should not vary by much more than a couple of minutes throughout Chicagoland.
19:22 Sunset 19:41 Moonrise at azimuth 105.6° and angular diameter of 33.3 arcminutes 19:51 Spica Rises at azimuth 105.7° 19:56 Saturn rises at azimuth 99.9°
