The Moon Waxes, Jupiter Blazes
The Earth made its closest approach to Jupiter for 2014 last month, but the giant planet is still a brilliant sight in the evening sky. Tomorrow night (Monday, February 10), the waxing gibbous Moon passes near Jupiter. Both are in the constellation Gemini (the two bright stars above and to the left of Jupiter are Castor and Pollux, the twins).
It’s going to be another frigid evening, but skies should be clear enough to see these bright lights of the night.
