See the conjunction of the moon and Mars tonight (Sept. 16)

Mars and the moon will make a close approach to each other in the sky tonight (Sept. 16), and here’s what you can expect to see. 

The waning gibbous moon will pass a mere three degrees to the north of the Red Planet. This close encounter, or conjunction, occurs at 9:43 p.m. EDT (01:43 GMT on Sept. 17), when the two objects share the same right ascension, according to In-the-Sky.org
