Brilliant Jupiter is now in the night sky. It rises at 11:30 p.m., and you can see it low in the southeast from about midnight. The constellations to the rights of Jupiter are Sagittarius and Scorpius. Good binoculars or a small telescope reveal Jupiter's four major moons, which change their positions from hour to hour and night to night.
