Mars can be seen close to the Moon on the evening of the 8th! The pair will become visible from around 21:30 in the West, they can be seen until they set at around 23:30 in the West. The closest approach is at 00:36 but the pair will still appear close in the sky that evening.
The image shows their location at 21:30 on the 8th
