If it wasn’t snowing….


The moon is still in Pisces tonight, but it has moved to the east and is nearer to Jupiter. Jupiter appears as a bright star below the moon. Look at Jupiter with binoculars, and then look at a bright star with binoculars. Jupiter is magnified into a tiny ball, but the star remains a tiny pinpoint. Now hold the binoculars really steady by bracing your elbows or putting the binoculars on a camera tripod, and just maybe you will see some of the four biggest moons that circle Jupiter. From night to night they change places as they orbit around the planet.
