Jupiter will be big, bright today night

Jupiter, the largest after the Sun in the solar system, will be at its biggest and brightest today night much to the delight of sky-gazers.
The planet, which has a system of rings, is at its closest approach and thus would appear more big and bright than usual, N Sri Raghunandan Kumar of Planetary Society of India said.
The planet can be seen with naked eyes an hour after the sunset in the eastern direction today. It will be visible all through the night and at midnight one can spot it in the southern direction at a higher elevation, he said.
According to him, Jupiter, which has a large number of natural satellites, will be in ‘opposition’ today night. “A planet is said to be in opposition when it is directly opposite to the Sun from our view from Earth,” he said.
