Watch Out: Jupiter in Opposition With Earth This February

For a short month, the month of February has a lot of action starting with the planets.

While the gas giant jupiter can be seen in the east, Earth’s twin Venus can be seen on the western horizon and the two wax brilliantly against the fading sunset.

On 21st of this month Venus makes a close pass by the red planet Mars below a young crescent moon.

Jupiter reaches opposition on the 6th when it is lapped by Earth in the orbital race and the planet can be seen opposite to sun in the sky. Until 2019, this year will be its closest opposition. Jupiter will be 404 million miles away from earth, which is much more than the distance between Earth and the Sun.

Jupiter comes to the opposition once in every 13 months since it’s orbital period around the sun is 12 years. If we start running the clock with Jupiter as the opposition, during the first year we will orbit the sun completely whereas jupiter will be covering 1/12th of the total distance but Earth comes back to the starting point. And hence, we have to add 1/12th of more orbit to be in line with jupiter again, which hence results in 13 months to cope up with Jupiter.

On the third a full moon rises right after sunset, only a few minutes after the moment of perfect fullness. This means a gorgeously round moon against a pale sky. This moon has been called the full hunger moon and the full snow moon.
