Jupiter Exits the Evening Sky

Jupiter is quickly sliding into the sunset heading for superior conjunction on June 19th. This evening the planet will be 10° above the setting Sun, in the next few days it will disappear into the glare. Look for Jupiter to reappear in the dawn during the first week of July.

One thought on “Jupiter Exits the Evening Sky”

  1. Andrew- Looked for Jupiter last night on my neighborhood walk and didn’t see it, so assumed it was gone for the season. Was out a few minutes earlier tonight and unmistakably saw it a couple degrees off the horizon. Can’t imagine seeing it any lower, so it really is gone for the season now… Thanks for the reminder to go look one more time! -Dean
