Jupiter on Sunday, was its closest point to us all year. It also appears larger in the sky - appearing as approximately 1/50 the size of the full moon in the sky, although it still looks like a bright star. Left to right, and bottom to top --Europa, Io, JUPITER, Ganymede and Callisto.
FYI, Jupter is the bright "star" that rises in the East/Northeast shortly after sunset. As the night goes on it climbs higher in the sky.
