Jupiter

If you go outside this weekend, like right now, and look up SSE in Pisces. That brightest object is Jupiter. It is as close as its been in 59 years.

Anyone else look to the SSW about sunset and see the missile or rocket flying ENE?  Should have taken a video.

Watched a livestream of SpaceX launching 52 more Starlink satellites about that time, and the booster rocket went ENE up the coast to push them into low orbit. Then landed the re-usable booster on a barge out in the ocean. 

Must have been quite a sight to see live.

At first I thought it was a commercial jet and the sunset caused the contrail to reflect odd, sort of a swamp gas stuck in a weather balloon reflecting the light off of Venus kind of thing, but then I saw a couple of other jets in the sky and realized it wasn't that.  Eventually it just vanished into the sky, it was still going up at that time.

I went outside and looked at the moon and stars last week and saw a extra bright star so I took a picture, after severely cropping it I got this.

From latin "planeta", wandering star. 
I remember someone telling me one root meant "traveler". They moved across the background stars.

Back in the 70's when Jupiter was near, we looked at it with regular binoculars several nights in a row. We could notice that the biggest moons, which we could see, had traveled around the planet some from the night before. It was amazing.
