Jupiter Exits the Evening Sky

Jupiter and the moons Europa, Ganymede and Callisto (left-right)
Jupiter is quickly sliding into the sunset heading for superior conjunction on July 24th. This evening the planet will be 15° above the setting Sun, in the next couple of weeks it will disappear into the glare. Look for Jupiter to reappear in the dawn during the first week of August.
