Early on Thursday morning, I awoke and observed an amazingly vivid Jupiter, peeking out from large puffs of clouds.
Forty-one gentle minutes from the Solar, about 461 million miles, Jupiter is twice the dimensions off of all planets in our photo voltaic system mixed. Enormous however far-off, it seems starlike in our sky.
Binoculars present us a few of Jupiter’s moons, strung out like a line beside the enormous planet.
I observed a few different starry sights as properly. Pleaides is hazy patch, close to vivid Jupiter. Saturn is to the west. Rising to the east is the Wintermaker constellation. We additionally realize it as Orion.
For these early risers, Jupiter is the intense “star” excessive within the southeast. Get pleasure from summer season whilst you can.
