Tonight is the opposition of Jupiter (8 April 2017)

Evening sky on Saturday April 8 looking east as seen from Adelaide at 22:00 ACST.  Jupiter is above the horizon close to the bright star Spica.The nearly full Moon is nearby the pair.  The inset shows the telescopic view of Jupiter at 22:00 ACST on the 8th with Io and its shadow transiting Jupiter's face.

Just a reminder that tonight is the opposition of Jupiter, go out and have a look now.
