Jupiter. Jupiter has now risen in the east after sunset and, at magnitude -2.9, will be well seen for much of the night.  By month’s end it is due south and highest in the sky at about 9:30 GMT (the clocks will have gone back by then!).  It well worth observing with a telescope, as Jupiter has (presumably temporarily) lost its South Equatorial Belt and at the same time, the Great Red Spot has intensified its colour so is now standing out very well!   A small telescope will easily pick up Jupiters four Galilean moons as they weave their way around it.

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
