Uranus is Big but Jupiter is Huge Tonight

Sorry, that never gets old.  Jupiter is close tonight.  The next time it will be this close is 2022.  It is a mere 368 million miles away. 

As I blog, (8:45pm), Jupiter is rising in the east and will be directly overhead at 12:43am ET.  Jupiter is the brightest thing in the sky aside from our moon. 

Uranus will also be visible and will appear just above Jupiter as a greenish star.
