Look for a bright Jupiter tonight

Posted at 1:51 PM, Jun 10, 2019

BOZEMAN – Monday, June 10th will be the night to view the planet Jupiter. Earth will be between the Sun and Jupiter. This means Jupiter will be shining brightly in our night sky. This is known as “opposition”.

Jupiter will be rising in the East as the Sun sets in the West and will reach the highest point around midnight and falling below skyline by sunrise Tuesday in the West.

Unfortunately, our weather forecast is mostly cloudy tonight for SW Montana but if you have a telescope you might get a glimpse of Jupiter this evening.

If you know your constellations in the night sky look for Scorpius and just North of this constellation you should find Jupiter. Best viewing will be away from city lights.
