Don’t miss Jupiter

Jupiter is at its best now, shining brilliantly. You can see it easily, ascending in the east each evening.

German photographer Matt Aust posted this photo at EarthSky Facebook. It’s the very bright planet Jupiter – now the brightest starlike object up for most of every night – outshining even Sirius, the sky’s brightest star.

Thank you, Matt!
