Get ready for closest moon-Jupiter conjunction until 2026 with these awesome photos
On January 21, 2013, the moon will sweep near the planet Jupiter in what will be the closest moon-Jupiter conjunction until the year 2026. North Americans are particularly well-placed to see the moon and Jupiter very close together in the evening sky. Itíll be a waxing gibbous moon Ė more than half-lighted but less than full Ė thatíll pass less than a degree to the south of Jupiter that night. It should be very beautiful, as seen from around the globe, not only on January 21 but also on January 19 and 20, and for several nights before and after that as well. In fact, as the moon waxes in the evening sky in the coming days, you can watch the moon creep toward Jupiter. How you can you find Jupiter? You canít miss it! Itís the brightest starlike object in the evening sky now.

This seems quite passe given the discovery of the Higgs Boson Particle. No one seems to understand the weight of this newest discovery. They still want to look through Newtonian period telescopes. It is sort of nostalgic though. That's about it.
