The Moon and Jupiter will make a close approach, passing within 4°26' of each other.

The pair will visible in the east in the early morning sky. At the moment of closest approach, the Moon will be at mag -10.8, and Jupiter at mag -2.0, both in the constellation Gemini.

The pair will be too widely separated to fit within the field of view of a telescope, but will be visible to the naked eye or through a pair of binoculars.

At a declination of +22°36' , they will be seen to best advantage in the northern hemisphere; in fact, they will be unobservable from latitudes south of 47°S. At Jerusalem, the pair will rise 5 hours and 17 minutes before the Sun.
