Where to see the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in ED?

Sadly I think it's going to be cloudy, but assuming it miraculously clears, does anybody know where would be a good place to see the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction today?


Visible 4.30 - 6pm at 15 degrees above the south west horizon.


I'm kicking myself because apparently it was visible yesterday too and it was a clear sky 😭

The expert on the Today programme this morning said it will be low above the horizon - she suggested 2 finger widths (like whisky measure!). They will be visible over the next couple of weeks, slowly distancing from each other in the next few days or so.

    • Suggest you get come Correx eg from an old estate agents sign and cut it into 50mm wide strips. Then get some carpet tacks (15mm long)  Push the carpet tacks into and through the Correx at 25mm intervals so that the sharp ends stick upwards. Then attach the strip to the top of your fence where it is lowest. It  doesnt injure them. It just makes it uncomfortable for them and they soon learn.
    • At sue , do you think the people of southwark or even the UK on their own can solve all of the environmental problems in the world on our own ? And putting garden waste into a brown bin is going to solve the environmental  problems of the world ? I do my bit for the environment by doing my recycling and driving a electric van , southwark council are causing more pollution by having LTNs and causing the traffic jams and vehicles to idle, believe me iam all for the environment but I'm afraid what happens to the earth in 200 , 500 or one thousand years from now is not my concern , I need to makesure that I can keep myself and my family alive now the same as many other people who are finding it difficult to pay for food and pay their Bills,  so I'm afraid I will be putting my garden waste into MY green bin which I pay for via my council tax and save my £80 which would help pay for my electric of gas or food ..  Also heard that council may only be collecting green and blue bins once a month,  not confirmed but just hear say at the moment ...
