Keep an eye on Jupiter during the Juno orbital insertion with Slooh Observatory

NASA's return to Jupiter provides an excellent chance to watch the splendor of our largest planet from afar.

On Monday, NASA officially returns to Jupiter for the first time since the Galileo probe ended its mission in a dazzling crash. The Juno probe will skim dazzlingly close to Jupiter multiple times in a polar orbit, obtaining information and the atmosphere and magnetic fields.

To kick off the event, happening Monday evening, the Slooh Observatory will be keeping an eye on Jupiter. While it's unlikely you'll see the truck-sized orbiter, there's still plenty to learn about the largest planet in our solar system.

Slooh's show, hosted by astronomer Paul Cox and our contributor Bob Berman, will start at 10:30 p.m. EDT. Tune in then, either at Slooh website, or at the embed below.
