Tonight, with a good pair of binoculars, in the southwestern sky you will be able to see Jupiter with four of its moons visible, Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto (the Galilean satellites--of course there are 58 more moons that you won't be able to see) .
For a great kids' site about Jupiter click here. Check out how much you'd weigh if you visited the biggest planet in our solar system. I clock in at 307 pounds.
And by the way, the Southwest Night Sky Conference will be held Sept. 13-15 in Taos. Photo credit: NASA
