Space agency NASA suggests we see the planet with its moons through binoculars or small telescopes in all their brilliance.
With a pair of binoculars, he added that people will also be able to spot Jupiter's four Galilean moons throughout the summer - Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto.
NASA added, the days between June 14 and 19, will be the best time for sky gazers to catch the most attractive celestial line-up of the Moon, Jupiter, and Saturn. Opposition will occur at 6 p.m. (EST), but Jupiter will be at its peak (and best for viewing) around 11:30 this evening. Planets can be spotted because they don't twinkle like stars, they glow.
Jupiter will begin to rise in the sky after sunset, though it will take a few hours to climb high enough to get a good view, according to Bob King of Sky & Telescope magazine. "Even when it's low down, it will look pretty steady, and that will make it stand out". The planet will rise in the east and track across the southern sky as the night progresses before setting in the west.
Waiting a little while will also provide you with a darker sky and travelling to a dark sky location, away from light pollution, will provide the best results.
"Jupiter is very dynamic, and there's a lot of weather and cloud dynamics on there, so we're studying that trying to find out how this all works on big gas giant planets like Jupiter".
If you don't have time to search the skies tonight, don't worry too much.
Jupiter will be the second-brightest planet in our night sky, following only Venus.
Between June 14 and 19, Jupiter will be at the center of another celestial event. Jupiter is known to have at least 79 moons, though it's possible more may be discovered with improved technology. Jupiter, the solar system's largest planet, reached opposition last night. Instead, the moon's orbit is slightly tilted, making the astronomical body align with the sun and Earth-creating conditions for a lunar or solar eclipse-just a few times a year rather than on a regular basis.
