Sun opposite Jupiter – a shining late visitor: Jupiter arrives at midnight

Sun opposite Jupiter

Sun opposite Jupiter will occur on April 7th, 2017 at 21:38:52 UT (17:38:52 EDT) in tropical Libra/Aries, sidereal and constellational Virgo/Pisces (view zoomable attached chart). It means, among other things, that these days you have the chance to admire Jupiter about midnight near M.C., id est, at its culminating point. Jupiter, like a shining brilliant, actually seems to be an exquisite ornament to the garment of the constellational Virgo, near her first ’marker star’ called ’Spica’. As Moon will be almost full (circa 90%)  on the night of 7-8th April, well within reach of the constellation Virgo (centrally located in the constellational Leo), it is recommended to observe that on the night of 5-6th April. Do not miss this celestial scenery, have clear skies.  >>> More Astro Info
