The brilliant planet Jupiter is visible throughout the night during the current winter months, moving slowly against the background stars of Leo, (The Lion), and Virgo, (The Maiden). It is very obvious in the southern sky.
Jupiter is the largest planet of the Sun's family. It is a world of swirling clouds and raging storms. Come and explore this gas giant and some of its 60+ Moons. The 'big four' of Jupiter's Moons are fascinating worlds, with active volcanoes, an ice-covered ocean, and surfaces scarred by impacts.
Come to the Planetarium and explore this giant world of our Solar System.
