Saturn and a bright moon share the sky Wednesday (Sept. 7)

The bright moon passes by Saturn on Wednesday (Sept. 7), coinciding with the moon’s closest approach to Earth.

Currently in a waxing gibbous phase, the moon will appear near Saturn on the evenings of September 7th and 8th. However, while Saturn currently shines brightly at a +0.4 magnitude, the moon’s glow may make it difficult to spot the ringed planet — especially as the moon reaches perigee.
