Watch the Jupiter’s Opposition at a Stargazing Party
Conducted in Japanese
“Jupiter’s Opposition” is the day the Earth orbiting inside Jupiter catches up with and actually overtakes Jupiter.
August 20 is the day of “opposition” when the sun and Jupiter are in the exact opposite positions when viewed from Earth. Join us to look for Jupiter that shines brightly in the night sky of Tokyo!
