Image Credit: Barry Adcock

Jupiter reaches its closest point to Earth on night of the 1th June and the great Red Spot ( visible 8pm until about 10pm) which is undergoing stripping from other storms is currently changing greatly in comparison to the past. Jupiter is at its highest altitude close to midnight. For those who can handle the cold and late hours, it will be well worth it if it is clear, weather forecast is looking promising 🙂 Moon will be bright but setting close to midnight and Saturn will also be high. Observatory closes at 7.00am Wednesday Morning. Camping available.
Members Free.
