Can you perhaps post a screen shot of the alignment from Stellarium, if anything, just to get a visual of what you saw?

2 things come to mind.
1. there could easily be lots of volcanic haze coming from iceland, particularly in your neck of the woods.
2.jupiter is about to move into aries. but mercury will be in gemini on june 9th.
so i imagine they would not be seen as close as you describe; but i'm not an astronomer.
may 10 2011 will have mercury exactly conjunct jupiter at 24 degrees aries and on june 9 2011 mercury will be 1 and1/2 signs past jupiter at 15 degrees gemini.
on june 9 of 2012 mercury will still be 35 degrees in front of jupiter. how this will look in the sky someone else will have to advise.
i dont mean any of this to detract from your vision. many have had visions or dreams of calamity awaiting earth and its peoples including me. hundreds of prophets from all warks of life down thru the centuries have spoken of ill tidings ahead, including the sun rising from the west.

There will be no full moon on 9 June 2010. Full moon is Friday 28 May, so 9 June will be a waning moon. As moonrise on 9 June would be sometime in the early morning you would see it by looking east, but it will not be a full moon, but something a bit less than half moon.
