Jupiter can be seen close to the Moon on the evening of the 1st and morning of the 2nd! The pair will become visible from around 22:30 in the South East, they can be seen until around 03:15 in the South West. The closest approach is at 00:32 on the 2nd. Look just to the left of them and you can also see Saturn shining brightly!

The image shows their location at 22:15 on the 1st.
