Venus can be seen close to the Moon on the evening of the 15th for a very short time so be quick! The pair will become visible from around 21:30 in the West, they can only be seen for around 1 hour as they set at around 22:30. The closest approach is on the 16th at 04:32 however the pair won’t be visible.
Don’t forget to become a FREE member of the site and upload your images, we would love to see them!
