See the conjunction of the moon and Saturn on Thursday (Sept. 8)

On Thursday (Sept. 8), the moon and Saturn will make a close approach to each other sharing the same right ascension , an event  known as a conjunction. 

The two objects will pass to within around 3⁰ 43′ of each other in the evening sky and will be visible in front of the constellation of Capricornus. Over the sky of New York, the conjunction will be visible at around 7:33 p.m. ET (2333 GMT) and will be located to the southeast about 13⁰ above the horizon. (A fist at arm’s length equals roughly 10⁰.)
