Jupiter's satellite positions:


Jupiter: is in the centre of Virgo where it brightly shines (magnitude -1.7) (Diameter: 30.6").
Jupiter rises at about 5am in the south-east at the start of the month, and by about 4am at the end of the month. This giant planet travels slowly through Libra, the Scales. By the 24th it will be approaching the wonderfully named main constellation star of Zubenelgenubi. This is an Arabic name which translates into English as 'The Southern Claw of the Scorpion'.
A waxing crescent Moon is to the right of Jupiter on the 26th and below on the 27th.
