Jupiter Opposition 8th May 2018

Majestic Jupiter, king of the planets reaches opposition on the night of the 8th May this year and will be at its closest to Earth on May 10th. We’ll be running Jupiter watch sessions with our big telescopes throughout May which also sees a number of moon transits like the one pictured when you can watch one of the Galilean moons and its shadow cross the face of Jupiter.  Saturn and Mars are also up making this a great month for planetary observations and imaging!
