Hey Space Placers!
Make sure you vote for Curiosity - see my blog http://www.myfoxdc.com/link/561672/skyguy-greg-redferns-blog
Now that you have voted ;-), check out a live broadcast of Jupiter reaching opposition tonight at 8:15 EST http://images.slooh.com/files/press_release/jupiter_dec2012.pdf. When a planet is at opposition it is directly opposite the Sun and at its closest point to Earth.
Be sure to look for yourself in the east after sunset. But don't worry, Jupiter will be bright and in our night sky for months to come. But it won't be this close to Earth again until summer 2021.
