Jupiter is approaching a close encounter with the Earth, which will make it appear beautifully bright in the sky. The night of the closest contact will be September 21st, very close to the Autumn Equinox, but until then it will be gloriously bright. Jupiter is near its perihelion, where it is closest to the Sun and brighter than in its twelve-year orbit.
Enjoy the view!
