These next several evenings - September 5, 6 and 7, 2019 - feature the moon and the solar system's two largest gas giant planets, Jupiter and Saturn. Given clear skies, you can't miss the moon and Jupiter. Jupiter is simply the brightest starlike object visible.

You'll also find a reddish star shining close to Jupiter on the sky's dome. It's Antares, the brightest star in the constellation Scorpius the Scorpion. Although Antares provides a prime example of a 1st-magnitude star, it nonetheless pales next to Jupiter. Jupiter, which is brighter than any star, is nearly 20 times brighter than Antares.


If your have a telescope, you can see Jupiter's Galilean moons (the four largest moons) and Saturn's rings.
