Moon and Jupiter

I would just like to say to the forum,
I was outside with me and my uncle tonight, testing out new pair of binoculars, having a look at the early moon, when low and behold, what did we see; Jupiter underneath the moon; an amazing sight, will never forget it.

Jupiter and the moon meet together in the sky about once a month. The configuration is always different and well worth looking out for. 3rd June is the next time. 1st July, 28th July & 25th August the times after that...
I use an 11" reflector (Celestron CPC 1100) and a 3" refractor, (Sky-Watcher ST80) mounted on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI 120MM, ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 1300D for imaging.
