A few weeks before and after the opposition on June 2019, Jupiter will be very bright, reaching a visual magnitude of about -2.5 to -2.6.

Using a telescope or binoculars, one can also spot four of Jupiter's moons, Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto, on both sides of the planet, he added.

Once you occur to must need to strive the solar system's largest planet, the next couple of nights are the absolute top nights of the twelve months to construct it.

The biggest planet in our solar system is about to get as close, and thus appear as bright, to Earth as it will all year.

This event only happens once every 13 months, but Jupiter will remain quite visible the entire month surrounding opposition.

NASA added, the days between June 14 and 19, will be the best time for sky gazers to catch the most handsome celestial line-up of the Moon, Jupiter, and Saturn.

But even if you can't catch a glimpse on the 10th, the days before and after will make for good viewing, too.

Even when it is low down, it will look pretty steady, and that will make it stand out.

And, with a pair of binoculars, you may also be able to see a few of its moons.

Then on Wednesday, Jupiter will in truth be at its closest display camouflage Earth this twelve months - at factual 640,862,318 kilometres. While this arguably doesn't sound like most people's idea of close, the Earth's average distance to the monstrous planet is 786,884,800 kilometres. Juno, the most recent, arrived in 2016. The spacecraft was launched so scientists could study Jupiter's composition and evolution, and is now orbiting the planet.

Jupiter was visible in the morning sky from the first week of January just before sunrise in the constellation "Sagittarius" in which it remains nearly throughout the year.
