Yes – That’s Jupiter right beside the Moon tonight.

Jupiter and Moon at 8pm on Jan 2nd 2012

This shows where to look for Jupiter and the Moon at 8pm on Jan 2nd 2012

So… there are a couple of really neat things to look up at tonight. The first is that very bright passing of the ISS at 6:17pm for anyone in Southern California. Then – just locate the Moon and the very bright “Star” near it is in fact the largest planet in the solar system – JUPITER.

Just get out and take a look – why don’t ya!!
