During the week of the 14th July 2020 the biggest planet in our solar system will appear at its largest as the earth passes between it and the sun. During the whole week Jupiter will be highly visible (clouds permitting) and we’ve gathered some equipment ideas which will help photographers and budding astronomers to get the best view in the house from our very own planet earth.

There is a brilliant interactive tool which allows visitors to select the planet they wish to view, and the tool then displays the best time to take in the night sky in order to view that planet. Visit the Time And Date website here for the celestial tool which includes Jupiter spotting.
