Opposition of Jupiter, October 2011
The Opposition of Jupiter is tonight, when Jupiter is biggest and brightest as seen from Earth. Look to the North-east in the early evening, and the north in the late evening. It's the brightest object in the north-eastern sky at the moment. Don't worry if you can't see it tonight, it will be big and bright for many weeks to come, and a worthy target in binoculars or small telescopes.
If you don't have a telescope, now is a good time to visit one of your local astronomical societies open nights or the local planetariums.
What do you think of this potentially hazardous asteroid discovered this month, the 2011 UL21 that based on 77 observations, the predicted dangerous approaches. 4 on a scale of 1 of Turin
