September 11 - Moon Chases Jupiter

See the conjunction of the Moon and Jupiter on Sunday (September 11)

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

The moon will pass about a degree 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 around 8:37 p.m. ET (0037 GMT on September 12) about seven degrees above the eastern horizon. (A fist at arm’s length is about 10 degrees in the sky.)
