As the waxing gibbous moon shines brightly, Saturn will be close to it.

It is a small but bright looking star that appears near the moon throughout the night.

From October 6-8, it will stay close after sunset and before sunrise.

Head outside around 9 p.m. and look to the southern sky to find the moon.

To the right of the moon is Saturn and to the left is a bonus planet, Jupiter.

The three will set in the southwestern sky before sunrise.

Jupiter is very bright and easy to find this month at night!
