It's also the last chance to catch the moon alongside the "planet parade" that's thrilled skywatchers this month.

"The silver sliver of the old moon's crescent will shine several finger widths to the upper left (or 3.5 degrees to the celestial north) of the bright dot of Mercury," writes Chris Vaughan, amateur astronomer with SkySafari Software who oversees Space.com's Night Sky calendar.

The moon may be rather tricky to spot at first glance as it will be a very thin crescent, only 3% illuminated, according to Space.com's skywatching columnist Joe Rao. .

The orange first-magnitude star will be shining about 7 degrees to the left of Mercury according to Rao. .

Monday morning is also your last good chance to catch a glimpse of the moon joining in with the rare planetary alignment that has been present this month!

Throughout June left to right Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn have lined up in their orbital order from left to right in the southeastern sky. .
