Taipei, July 11 (CNA) Stargazers will have a chance to see the planet Jupiter at its brightest next Tuesday, when it moves closest to Earth, the Taipei Astronomical Museum said Friday.

The opposition of Jupiter, which occurs when the Earth comes between the sun and the largest planet in the solar system, will offer the best view of Jupiter this year, the museum said.

Observation conditions should be ideal days before and after the opposition, according to the museum.

Anyone can easily find Jupiter throughout the night, as it rises at dusk from the southeast and descends at dawn to the southwest, the museum said.    [FULL  STORY]
