Jupiter Is Inching Towards Earth

Jupiter Is Coming close this Month for Us to See it Jupiter Is Inching Towards Earth

You can spot Jupiter much comfortable now, especially this month, every night just looking at the sky. This whole month gives up excellent viewing opportunities.

Using a telescope or binoculars, Jupiter, along with its four largest moons - Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto - will be visible on June 10. You will see a bright star shining in the horizon, but it's not a star, it's Jupiter.

The opposition occurs to be a ideal excuse to exit and take a look at some moon-spotting for yourself. This is also around the time when the two planets are closest to each other.

Jupiter will rise in the east around sunset Monday evening, and remain big and bright in the night sky into Tuesday morning before setting in the western sky.

Might cost just $17 per month
We don't know how much Apple TV + will cost, but Disney is coming out with Disney+ in the fall for $6.99 per month. Of course, Warner now has a streaming service with DC Universe, and many have wondered what may happen to that.

NASA has announced for all space fans to be on watch because Jupiter, the gas giant, will be seen with binoculars when the planet is near opposition.

"Although opposition takes place on a specific date, the entire month or so around opposition is an equally good time to observe the planet and its four largest moons". One of Jupiter's first surprises to the world of science was in 1610, when Galileo Galilei discovered its moons, the first ones to be discovered beyond the Earth.

With a more powerful telescope, stargazers may be able to see Jupiter's red bands of clouds and perhaps even the well-known "great red spot", a giant storm that has been swirling on the planet for hundreds of years.

Jupiter, the fifth planet from the Sun and the largest in the Solar System, is going to make its closest approach to Earth in 2019 on Monday. Saturn will also appear nearby in the sky, rising shortly after the Jupiter and moon.
