Tonight, as I was unloading the car, I noticed a particularly bright "star" right next to the moon. I set up the telescope and sure enough, it was Jupiter. Jupiter is cool to look at through the telescope because every night the four moons are configured differently. Tonight, for instance, it had two moons to the one side real close, and two moons to the other side more widely spaced out. If the sky is clear tomorrow night, and I'm awake, maybe I'll see how the moons are configured then.
