Jupiter rising

Jupiter is visible in the night sky at the moment just above the moon as it rises in the night sky. It is currently approximately 700 million kilometres from Earth.

The camera I used does not illustrate Jupiter very well but with a 20x telescope you can pick out the 4 Galilean moons (Io, Europa, Ganymead & Callisto).
