The Moon & Mars

19/09/2018 @ 7:30 pm – 20/09/2018 @ 12:30 am Europe/London Timezone

The pair can be seen from dusk in the South South/East from around 19:30 and travel across to the South West, where they set at around 00.30. The closest approach is at 06:21 on the morning of the 20th however the pair won’t be visible. Look before 22:15 and you can see Saturn to the right! A stunning sight! They will still appear close together on the evening of the 20th.

The image shows their location on the 19th at 21.20.
