Over the next two days, July 8th and 9th, the waxing crescent Moon will pass by the planet Jupiter as this animated graphic shows. For most of us around the world we will see (weather permitting!) the Moon come within a few degrees from Jupiter on the 9th.
However if you happen to be in the area of Southern Africa or the island of Madagascar you will be able to see an occultation of Jupiter by the Moon.
