Jupiter can be seen close to the Moon on the evening of the 28th and morning of the 29th! The pair will become visible from around 20:30 in the South, they can be seen until the set in the South West around 01:00. The closest approach is at 02:39 on the 29th however the pair will be below the horizon. Look just to the left of them and you can also see Saturn shining brightly!
