Stargazers are in for a treat in June.
The largest planet in the solar system is at its biggest and brightest this month, rising in the night sky at dusk and remaining visible all night, according to NASA.
When Jupiter moves closest to Earth on June 10, the gas giant will be visible in the night sky with the naked eye, even in cities, and its four largest moons will be visible with just a pair of binoculars.
With binoculars or a small telescope, NASA said astronomy buffs may even catch a glimpse of the banded clouds that encircle the planet.
"Although opposition takes place on a specific date, the entire month or so around opposition is an equally good time to observe the planet and its four largest moons," according to NASA.
