Watch the conjunction of the Moon and Jupiter on Sunday

On Sunday (September 11), Jupiter and the Moon will approach each other in the sky sharing the same correct ascension, an astronomical arrangement known as a conjunction.

The Moon will pass within about 1 degree to the south of Jupiter in the evening sky and both objects will be visible in front of the constellation Pisces. From New York, the conjunction of the Moon and Jupiter will appear from about 8:37 PM ET (0037 GMT on September 12) at about seven degrees above the eastern horizon. (A fist at arm’s length is approximately 10 degrees in the sky.)
