Venus close to the Moon

15/07/2018 @ 9:30 pm – 10:30 pm Europe/London Timezone

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!

The image shows their location at 21:45 on the 15th (image is from Stellarium, a fantastic piece of free software)
