The Moon, Jupiter, and Saturn line up to form a triangle of astronomical delight in the sky over Gloucestershire again on Saturday.
On Friday, the two planets were clearly seen near the moon and if the sky is clear, you should be able to see them again tonight.
Dara-Brian, comedian, presenter and enthusiastic stargazer was one of those who cheered on Friday’s scene, saying, “The moon, Jupiter, and Saturn make a wonderful triangle at the moment.”
Many have tweeted their own photos for the night show
According to the experts at Earth Sky, the triangle will be visible tonight and the best time to see it is around 9 PM.
She said that these two gas giants are difficult to miss because they are so close and can be recognized by their proximity to the moon.
The Bureau of Meteorology, in its latest forecast, suggests a partially cloudy night between 8 pm and 11 pm with temperatures near 11 degrees Celsius.
The moon today is in its convex phase that continues until the full moon on Thursday, October 1.
