Go Look at Jupiter!

Ok so folks, Jupiter is really close right now. It won't be this close for another 10 years. Head outside at about midnight each night for the next week or so and its going to be visible in the night sky.

Also, I should really invest in a telescope would be awesome to actually see this stuff properly.
