Jupiter at Opposition
Jun 10 all-day

The giant planet will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. It will be brighter than any other time of the year and will be visible all night long.

A good pair of binoculars should allow you to see Jupiter’s four largest moons, appearing as bright dots on either side of the planet
