The Moon and Jupiter - Side By Side - Universe Today
Want an easy way to find Jupiter on Thursday and Friday? Just look for the Moon. On March 4th and 5th, the Moon and Jupiter will be side-by-side in the sky inside the constellation Leo. And right now, Jupiter is only 400 million kilometres away - that's close. If you have a small telescope, point it at Jupiter, and you should be able to see the planet's four larger moons, dusty bands across its surface, and maybe even the Great Red Spot.
