This evening in the low southeastern sky they’ll be a nice conjunction between the full moon, the bright star Spica, and the planet Saturn.

Saturn is just seven degrees to the left of moon, less than the width of your fist held at arm’s length.

Spica’s even closer. With a small telescope you should be able to see Saturn’s rings and the separation be the ring system and the planet.
