On  Friday at 9:13 p.m., and on Saturday at 9:46 p.m., look to the western horizon and make sure you have a clear view free of trees or buildings that would block your view. When you find the waxing crescent moon, look toward the horizon for Jupiter. 

Jupiter will be to the bottom right of the moon Friday and Saturday evening.
