The Moon and Jupiter

This evening the Moon and Jupiter will be close. The two will be visible in the sky throughout the day becoming a striking pair as the sky grows dark. The Moon will be 23% illuminated and about 7° from the bright planet. Tomorrow night the pair will still be close, about 9.5° apart.
