#planet #space #Jupiter #Earth #Sun #opposition
It is a known fact all planets revolve around the Sun. During the course of journey around the Sun, the position of Earth & Jupiter is that they will have face off which is known as Opposition. That is to say, an observer can easily located Jupiter by looking opposite direction to the sunset in the evening or sunrise in the morning. Jupiter will be at its closest approach and would appear more big and brighter than usual.
The opposition will be for only one day, April 9 (Mark your calendars!). The opposition occurs every 13 months, i.e. the previous one occurred on March 8, 2016 and the next one will occur on May 9, 2018. But really, why wait another year?
Go watch some planets! 😀
