Planet Jupiter ~ The Gas Giant

Tonight Jupiter is at opposition, which means it is directly opposite the sun in orbit. It is also near its closest distance to Earth this year. Jupiter appears bigger and brighter, tonight. Here is a photo of Jupiter, it’s Galilean Moons and Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo.
