Have you been watching that bright star near the moon the last few nights? That’s Jupiter. Get out your binoculars and look for the 4 Galilean moons, those bright pin pricks of light near the planet. Left to right will be Ganymede first, then Europa second and Io right next to the planet. If you ambitious look for Io’s shadow on Jupiter through your telescope. On the right will be Callisto.
On October 2nd all 4 moons will be on the right side of Jupiter.
