Hello Jupiter!

The star looking dot on the lower left is the really the planet Jupiter.

Have you seen Jupiter in the sky? For the first time in over 50 years you can see Jupiter shining brightly near the full moon!

Astronomers have noted that the planet is so clear you can see the astronomic clouds around the planet as well as its markings. Near Jupiter you can even see a faint Uranus.

The last time Jupiter made such a dynamic appearance was in 1963. The planet is located 368 million miles from Earth adding amazement to the extraordinary show in the sky.

Grab your camera at nightfall and enjoy the rare appearance! Jupiter and Uranus will be visible for the next few weeks.
