See Jupiter at its best in opposition, the closest to Earth since 1963

In the last few nights there has been a bright light that drew attention to itself low in the eastern sky at around 7:30 pm local daylight saving time. It shines with a steady silvery glow and a couple of hours later, when it has risen considerably higher in the east-southeast part of the sky, it seems to draw attention.

Of course, this would make sense because you are looking at the object named after the king of the gods and also the king of the planets: the mighty Jupiter.
