Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system It will be closer to Earth than at any time in 59 years. The planet, which is normally 965 million kilometers from Earth, will be only 390 million kilometers from us in this age-old event set to take place on September 26.
In addition, people with good binoculars can see the giant planet along with Jupiter, according to NASA scientist Adam Kobelski. It will also be able to observe three or four of its satellites. The biggest requirement to make this comment is that any equipment you use is on a stable footing.
What do you need to see Jupiter with your eyes?
Those who want to go beyond just seeing Jupiter as a shape need a telescope, according to Kobelski. 4 inch and larger telescopes While it is claimed to be the best observation instrument, it is recommended to use green and blue filters to enhance the observation experience as well as this telescope. If you have all of these, you can see Jupiter with its famous ‘Great Red Spot’.
So what’s the best time and place for observations?
Observing Jupiter will be possible a few days before and after September 26, according to Kobelski. Although the day to make the best observation is not clear, the best place and condition for the observation is a place above sea level and dark and dry conditions will be.
In the coming days, we can expect amateur and professional observers to share their experiences with Jupiter and new vibrant photos of the planet.
So what makes Jupiter so close for the first time in 59 years?
Jupiter can be observed as brighter and larger than Earth every 13 months. But the event that makes the coming days indispensable is that the Earth and Jupiter orbit the sun. because it doesn’t spin in a full circle will happen. The orbits of the planets around the sun 59 years This is the first time that they intersect so closely.
