Jupiter and the Moon to Light Up Night Sky

Washington, Dec 25 (Prensa Latina) For those who like to observe astronomical phenomena, the night sky on Tuesday will provide a very special show, Jupiter and the Moon will be visible separated by less than two degrees.

At the end of the day, you just have to look east, and there will be those celestial bodies lighting up the darkness, and those who get a telescope may even discover storms and cloud belts of Jupiter and lunar mountains and craters, experts say.

Experts add that it will also be possible to see the characteristic Jupiter’s Great Red Spot, which is two times the width of Earth, and is “screwing up”.

Glenn Orton of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory of NASA said “Red Spot is shrinking.”

However, astronomers believe that the night of December 25 is a good time to observe it, particularly for those living in North America, because it will transit through the middle of Jupiter and it will be perfectly located for telescopic observations.
