Jupiter becomes extremely easy to spot over the next few days as the Moon moves on by it in the East. Tonight (Monday) Jupiter is the brightest “Star” in the East below and to the left of the Moon. Tomorrow the Moon gets even closer – being a tad to the right and below it.
Extra credit question! When you look at Jupiter… do you notice what is different about it when you compare it to any of the other stars in the area (not it’s brightness)?
