Mars and Jupiter can be seen close to the Moon on the evening of the 24th! This will be a fantastic sight and a great photo opportunity! The trio will become visible from around 19:30 in the South, they can be seen until around 22:45 when they start to sink below the horizon. The closest approach is at 07:48 on the 25th however they won’t be visible. You can see the trio on the evening of the 25th too.
The image shows their location at 20:50 on the 24th
