The biggest planet in our solar system is Jupiter. There are swirling gases on the planet that make up storm systems. Jupiter's Great Red Spot lasts for hundreds of years.
Thanks to the way it circles the Sun, the planet will be in better shape tonight. The distance between Earth and Jupiter is different due to the elliptical nature of the planets. The time it takes to travel around the Sun is 12 Earth years, whereas the time it takes to travel around Jupiter is a year.
Jupiter is about 600 million miles away. It will only be 361 million miles away. Jupiter is larger and brighter than usual because it is on the opposite side of Earth.
According to Adam Kobelski, a research astrophysicist at NASA, the planet will be visible with good binoculars. Kobelski said that a stable mount was one of the key needs.
The Great Red Spot can be seen with a 4-inch telescope. Jupiter will be visible to the naked eye if you have a telescope or binoculars, but you won't be able to see anything.
Its brightness will be more noticeable due to its proximity. Clear weather conditions, high altitudes, and a dark sky will help in observing Jupiter. Jupiter and its moons will be visible for a few nights after its closest approach.
If you want to see Jupiter in its full glory, you can refer to the recent images taken by the telescope.
More attention is going to be given to Jupiter's moons. The best-yet look at Jupiter's frozen moon will be given by NASA'sEuropa Clipper mission. Scientists think that the ocean is beneath the ice. The Clipper will use ice-penetrating radar to peer into the mysteries of the moon.
For the next few nights, we will get to see Jupiter and its satellites up close and personal.
The scientists looked at the storms at the north pole.
