Had a look at Vesta over the weekend. Couldn't really tell which one it was in the telescope but an easy target with binoculars. Trouble is it clouded over before I could confirm that it was moving. During the night of 16th / 17th February it will move through the gap between the magnitude 2.5 star Algieba or gamma Leonis (in Leo's Sickle asterism) and the fainter mag. 4 star 40 Leonis just below it. Vesta is about mag. 6 so it does stand out well. Here's a link to a printable star chart from Sky & Telescope. It reaches opposition tomorrow so now would be a good time to have a look but forcast not good. It will be observable for a few months but its position tonight will make it easier to identify.http://media.skyandtelescope.com/documents/WEB_VestaPath_Fndr.pdf?forumid=127055
Also found the Stellarium image to be spot on.
