Saturn can be seen close to the Moon on the morning of the 12th! The pair will become visible from around 20:55 in the South, they can be seen until they set at around 01:54 in the South West (morning of the 13th). The closest approach is at 10:53 on the 12th however the pair won’t be visible. Look to the right and you can also see Jupiter shining brightly!

The image shows their location at 21:55 on the 12th
