    Mercury will be best placed for viewing on this day, when it reaches maximum elongation from the Sun. At London latitudes it will be approx 10 degrees above the horizon at civil twilight (Sun 6 degrees below the horizon)

    One for our Southern Hemisphere members, the magnitude 8 asteroid Vesta will be under 2 degrees away from the Moon by the time of nautical twilight. It is closer earlier on, but not sure when you would be able to pick it up. Probably best in a wide field scope with a 2.5 or 3 degree field of view. Likely not dramatic, but interesting to see the two objects in context with each other. This is a screen shot set for Melbourne Australia for @Geoff Barnes
