The largest planet in the solar system will be close enough to see without a telescope this month, NASA says.
And, with a pair of binoculars, you may also be able to see a few of its moons.
According to the space agency, Jupiter will shine brightly in the night sky all throughout the month of June, with the best views likely to occur on June 10, when it reaches a point known as opposition.

Opposition means Jupiter will be aligned with Earth and the sun such that Earth sits right in the middle of the two.
‘It's the best time of the year to see Jupiter, as the planet is visible in the sky all night, and it's around the time when Jupiter is closest to Earth,’ NASA says.
But even if you can’t catch a glimpse on the 10th, the days before and after will make for good viewing, too.
Jupiter and its four largest moons – Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto – will all be clear using nothing more than binoculars.
‘Jupiter is at its biggest and brightest this month, rising at dusk and remaining visible all night,’ NASA says.
