Look at this... possibly dark in the far north, but this amazing view will be below the horizon.

Worth finding a hill near the south coast as almost the same view will be visible just as darkness falls, just above the horizon!

At dusk ~5pm they will be about 8 1/.2 degrees altitude. Get Jupiter as early as you can and hope to get Saturn!

About 18 degrees above the horizon here, according to Stellarium.  And the Sun will still be up, so not ideal.  Might be possible an hour or two later perhaps.

Nice one Neil - looks good at about 17:00 or so here in the South (mind you, at my age, I might have to lose a few kg, lay off the Shiraz, and up the vitamin pills to raise the chance of seeing it!)

8 1/2 degreed is for 5pm here in the midlands just about when Saturn shoudl become visible.

Mind you, it might be possible to pick them up earlier.
