Mars can be seen close to the Moon on the morning of the 1st! The pair will become visible from around midnight as they rise in the South East, they can be seen until they are lost to the sun around 04.30 in the South. The closest approach is at 00:59. Look to the right and you can also see Saturn shining brightly!
