Woke up to the Moon shining in the bedroom window, Jupiter not far from it. I again watched the Moon between the clouds in the partly cloudy skies - both visually and with binoculars. Jupiter was relatively close as well. 

In a large sucker hole was α Libra (Zubenelgenubi) and β Libra (Zubeneschamali), but Brachium was in the cloud cover below. Jupiter had certainly moved closer to α and was almost sitting centred on the α-β Librae line.
