NASA says that while Jupiter will only be at its closest point for one night, the entire month of June should be prime for Jupiter-gazing: "Jupiter reaches opposition on June 10".
Opposition means that Jupiter will be at its closest to Earth in its orbital cycle, coming within 398 million miles of us, according to National Geographic. (It takes Jupiter approximately 12 earth years to orbit the sun.) Since all the planets in the solar system orbit the sun on the same plane, imagine them as runners on a track going at varying speeds.
In a "skywatching tips" post for the month of June, NASA says Jupiter is "at its biggest and brightest this month, rising at dust and remaining visible all night".
Mark your calendars, as it will be the best time of year to see it.
