Hey, Sky Fans!
So, our old friend Jupiter is at opposition this weekend. That’s, just like we talked about with Saturn earlier this month, the spot when an object is directly opposite another object as seen by a viewer between them.
To celebrate, who’s up for an observing project this weekend? How about an observing project that lasts 12 years?!
I have a new article over at Sky & Telescope today, where we talk about keeping an eye on Jupiter for while and seeing how things go. I’m really happy with the way this one turned out. I hope you’ll give it a read, and let me know what you think.
Thanks, sincerely, if you do.
Have a great weekend. If you’re in the path of Henri, please be safe.
Thanks for stopping by, and clear skies, everyone!
