05/07/2020 @ 10:30 pm – 06/07/2020 @ 4:30 am Europe/London Timezone

Jupiter can be seen close to the Moon on the evening of the 5th and morning of the 06th! The pair will become visible from around 22:30 in the South East, they can be seen until dawn breaks when they are lost to dayligh in the South West. The closest approach is at 22:38 on the 05th however the pair may be difficult to see. Look just above them and you can also see Saturn shining brightly!

The image shows their location at 01:30 on the 06th
