It's Jupiter opposition this week, which means Jupiter joins Saturn as
part of our evening sky. At opposition, Jupiter rises at about sunset,
which is about 7:30 tonight. An hour later, it should be high enough to
view. Before then we'll have a nice first-quarter Moon, and Saturn as
soon as it's dark enough to find it (probably about 7:50 p.m.).
The only unknown right now is the weather. The forecast is for typical
"May Gray" marine-layer fog. It might close in before Jupiter is
available for viewing.
In any case, Jane and I will be in Old Town Pasadena this evening
(Friday) from about 7:30 'til 10 p.m., or until the low clouds and fog
wipe out the sky. We'll be on Colorado Blvd., somewhere on the two
blocks between Fair Oaks and Pasadena Avenues.
Saturday evening we plan a repeat performance in Monrovia at Myrtle and
Lime, from about 7:00 'til 9:30 p.m.
Hope to see you!
