Can you see Jupiter from earth 2022?

Monday, September 26, 2022: Jupiter at opposition Look east soon after sunset and you'll see Jupiter appear in the twilight. It will shine at a magnitude of -2.9, making it the brightest thing you can currently see in the post-sunset night sky apart from the Moon.

Do you keep seeing a really bright star in the eastern sky just after dark? No, it's not a UFO! It's Jupiter, the biggest planet in the solar system and the second-brightest planet—after Venus—we can see from Earth.

Which planets can we see from Earth with naked eyes? Only five planets are visible from Earth to the naked-eye; Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. The other two— Neptune and Uranus—require a small telescope. Times and dates given apply to mid-northern latitudes.

On average, Jupiter is 715 million km / 444 million mi away from the Earth. At their closest points, Jupiter and Earth are 588 million km / 365 million mi away from each other. At their farthest points, Jupiter and Earth are 968 million km / 601 million mi.

In the northern hemisphere, you should be able to see Jupiter in a telescope from 11 pm. The best time to view Jupiter through your home telescope is when it is at opposition from the sun in the sky (from our point of view). This means that Earth Jupiter's orbit briefly €œsync up on the same side of the sun.

Overview

Jupiter is covered in swirling cloud stripes. It has big storms like the Great Red Spot, which has been going for hundreds of years. Jupiter is a gas giant and doesn't have a solid surface, but it may have a solid inner core about the size of Earth. Jupiter also has rings, but they're too faint to see very well.Aug 10, 2022

The International Space Station (ISS) has been orbiting our planet since 1998. From most locations on Earth, assuming you have clear night skies, you can see ISS for yourself.

The distance of Jupiter from Earth is currently 627,168,416 kilometers, equivalent to 4.192362 Astronomical Units.

12 yearsOrbit and Rotation One day on Jupiter takes only about 10 hours (the time it takes for Jupiter to rotate or spin around once), and Jupiter makes a complete orbit around the Sun (a year in Jovian time) in about 12 Earth years (4,333 Earth days).
