Got A Pair Of Binoculars? You Can See Jupiter’s Moons Tonight
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – That’s right. All you need is a pair of binoculars.
According to NASA, Jupiter is at its closest to Earth during June, “rising at dusk and remaining visible all night.”
June 10 is when Jupiter reaches opposition, which means Jupiter, Earth and the Sun are arranged in a straight line, making it the best time to see the largest planet in our solar system.
NASA says Jupiter looks “fantastic” through binoculars or a small telescope, and you may even be able to spot the planet’s four largest moons and perhaps even the banded clouds that encircle the planet.
