The largest planet in the solar system will take center stage in the night sky this week as it appears brighter than any other point in 2021, making it a great opportunity to spot the planet with or without a telescope.

This week, Jupiter will appear slightly brighter as it reaches Opposition.
Opposition is an astronomical term meaning that Jupiter will appear opposite of the Sun from the perspective of the Earth.
This is also around the time when the two planets will be at their closest to each other (Earth & Jupiter).

Jupiter will officially reach Opposition on Thursday, Aug. 19th
The planet will remain vibrant in the sky throughout the rest of August.
