See the conjunction of the moon and Jupiter on Sunday conjunction

On Sunday (Sept. 11), Jupiter and the moon will make a close approach to each other in the sky sharing the same right ascension, an astronomical arrangement known as a conjunction.

The moon will pass to within around one degree to the south of Jupiter in the evening sky and both objects will be visible in front of the constellation of Pisces. From New York, the conjunction of the moon and Jupiter will appear from around 8:37 pm ET (0037 GMT on Sept. 12) at around seven degrees above the eastern horizon. (A fist at arm’s length equals roughly 10 degrees in the sky.)
