Jupiter Will Be So Close To Earth This Month That You Can See It With Your Naked Eye
Jupiter will be putting on quite the show in the night sky throughout the month of June.
According to NASA, Jupiter will be at its biggest and brightest this month, rising at dusk and remaining visible all night. It will even be visible in the cities too. While it will look cool to the naked eye, it will look even better through a pair of binoculars or a small telescope.
When you use your binoculars or a small telescope, you will even be able to see Jupiter's four largest moons. The planet will be so close that you might even be able to catch a glimpse of the banded clouds that encircle the planet.
This is so cool to me, as I find space and astronomy fascinating. NASA has pointed out a few interesting things going on during the month of June that may be of some interest of you. For example, in mid-June, Mars and Mercury appear ultra-close together immediately after sunset for two days, on June 17th and 18th.
