The moon will swing by Mars early Wednesday morning

Keep your eye on the eastern sky before dawn on Wednesday (June 22) to see the crescent moon approach Mars as it continues its tour of the morning planets.

“The moon’s pretty crescent will take up position a palm’s width to the right of Mars’ reddish dot.” Writes Chris Vaughan, amateur astronomer with SkySafari Software who oversees Space.com’s Night Sky calendar. “Bright Jupiter will shine off to their upper right (or celestial west).”
