OTHER-WORLDLY Jupiter, Saturn and Mercury conjunction how to watch tonight

• by Charlotte Edwards

Nasa said: "From Friday evening to Monday evening, the planet Mercury will appear to pass first by Saturn and then by Jupiter as it shifts away from the horizon, visible each evening low in the west-southwest and setting before evening twilight ends."

You should look towards the Capricorn constellation to try and spot the planets at twilight over the next few days.

Night sky scanning apps can be useful to download if you need to be pointed in the right direction of a constellation.

Some of the apps can even point out planets to you.
