Saturn can be seen close to the Moon on the evening of the 11th! The pair will become visible from around 16:45 in the South, they can be seen until they set at around 18:00 in the South West. The closest approach is at 15:33 however the pair won’t be visible. Look to the left and you can also see Mars shining brightly!
