Moon and Jupiter

Jupiter

Tonight the moon and the giant planet Jupiter rise together a little north of East. Jupiter is the bright star to the right of the moon in the early evening sky. Looking at the planet with binoculars on a tripod or braced to hold them steady, you will find three of Jupiter’s moons to the west of the planet, and one to the right. The planet Saturn in directly behind the sun today, so it cannot be seen.
