Early Friday morning, they will be a gorgeous conjunction between the waning full moon and the bright planet Jupiter in the high southern sky.

The moon will be just to the left of the moon.

On Saturday morning, the moon will be just to the right of Jupiter.

Even with a pair of binoculars you can see little star like objects either side of Jupiter — two on one side, two on the other. These are four of Jupiter’s largest moons.

See the diagram below.
