Jupiter will be quite bright next to the moon.
Last night was the full moon and it was the smallest full moon of the year.
I know, it's so cool to see it bright as hell up there.
I'm in the northeast and I can see Aldebaran to the right of Jupiter. It's fainter, but it's there.
The first time I ever heard of Aldebaran was when I listened to "2,000 Light Years From Home," by the Stones. There was a little outer space craze going on when it was recorded, what with tv shows like Star Trek, Dr Who and movies like 2001, a Space Odyssey
Jupiter-the happy fatso of our solar system! Shine on.
Beautiful sky tonight!
Jupiter will not be this bright next to the moon until 2021.
Aren't the planets supposed to align on Dec. 21, and we move to the "Age of Aquarius?"
I'm not kidding. I remember reading it somewhere.
