The Moon & Saturn

17/09/2018 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm Europe/London Timezone

The pair can be seen from dusk in the South from around 19:30 and travel across to the South West, where they set at around 22.30. The closest approach is at 17:30 however the pair won’t be visible due to daylight. Look for them at dusk and you can see Mars to the left of them, and Jupiter to the right! A stunning sight!

The image shows their location on the 17th at 20.30.
