As we all know that Jupiter is the biggest planet in the whole universe. The time has come when nature is giving you a golden chance to gaze the universe’s biggest gift ever which is the planet, Jupiter. The astronomers and stargazer must grab their necessary equipment to gaze the Jupiter as it the best chance to experience the best time of the year. The time has come when you will be able to look at our neighbouring planet.

NASA conveyed that Jupiter, “is at its biggest and brightest this month” and you can watch it with the smallest equipment you have to watch the planet. As per the details conveyed by NASA on its official website, “The solar system’s largest planet is a brilliant jewel to the naked eye, but looks fantastic through binoculars or a small telescope, which will allow you to spot the four largest moons.”

The view is going to be amazing as this is the time of the year when Jupiter is in its prime position. Right now, Jupiter is positioned in the line opposite to the Sun and the Earth. June 14 to 19 is going to be the best chance to gaze the planets Jupiter and Saturn which will change each night as the Moon orbits the Earth, NASA said, “While you’re out marvelling this trio, there’s a really neat astronomy observation you can attempt yourself, just by paying attention to the Moon’s movement from night-to-night.” Dr. Robert Massey, deputy executive director at Britain’s Royal Astronomical Society said, “Unlike stars, it won’t twinkle, even when it’s low down, it will look pretty steady, and that will make it stand out.

You’ll need a good clear southern horizon to see it.” The shape of the moons of the planet as well as the shape of the planet will be easily visible with the help of binoculars and for more details, you can carry a telescope.

Massey said, “My advice to people would be to go out and have a look because it’s a beautiful sight and it’s really quite a thing to realize that when you are looking at the moons with a pair of binoculars — when you see them moving from one night to the next — it’s worth reflecting on the fact that it was that discovery that cemented our view of the solar system as having the sun at the centre.”
