The gas giant Jupiter will be hanging by and almost full Moon tonight and shining bright itself. Look for it to the lower left of the moon as it becomes visible in the east around 5:40 p.m. It will climb faster than the Moon and be a beam of it to its left as the best viewing time arrives at 10:50 p.m. due south. It will set in the WNW at 5:46 along with the beaming moon.
The show will repeat on the evening of the 25th, but with the Moon to the left of Jupiter when it appears about 5:15 p.m. with Jupiter falling below the Moon as the night progresses. Best viewing time will be 10:45 p.m. Jupiter will set at 5:41 a.m. with the Moon following it below the horizon at 7:10 a.m.
