"On June 10th, Jupiter was closest to the Earth and rose as sunset — placing it in the sky all night long.
The timing makes it well placed for observation throughout much of the summer. Currently, the planet
is at its best for the year, at magnitude -2.6 with an angular diameter of 46-arc-seconds. It will “fade”
slightly to a still very bright magnitude -2.1 and shrink to 36-arcseconds by the start of fall, where it will
be in the west at sunset, setting just a few hours later. So, now is prime-time to view and image this
gas giant planet, its famous Great Red Spot (GRS), and attendant giant moons."
