See the Moon hide a star in Virgo tonight with binoculars

Observers in the British Isles blessed with clear skies at dusk can see the 10-day-old waxing gibbous Moon pass in front of a naked-eye star known as kappa Virginis soon after 11pm BST tonight. Since the star disappears at the Moon’s darkened limb, it will be an easy target in most binoculars.
