GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Tonight, September 23, 2017, Jupiter and the moon will line up in the western sunset sky. Both Jupiter and the moon will show up brightly about 45 minutes after sunset in the twilight.
Jupiter will set about an hour after sunset and the moon will set about 2 hours after sunset, so you’ll have to be quick to catch both! Between 8:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. should be your best time to catch both in the sky.
The weather looks fantastic for stargazing, so get out and enjoy!
