  Moon-Jupiter Event
21/22 January 2013 -- Evening Sky

By Martin Lewicki, Adelaide Planetarium, South Australia.

On the evening of 21/22 January 2013 a waxing gibbous Moon is visible near Jupiter and The Pleiades. Northern hemisphere observers need to face south and look up about 60° while for southern observers the bright pair are lower toward the north. Use binoculars to view the four Galilean satellites arranged near Jupiter.
