Jupiter's largest moons visible in June

DES MOINES, Iowa - You'll only need binoculars to check out Jupiter's largest moons this month.

The largest planet in the solar system will line up with Earth and the sun on Monday, June 10th and the gas giant will appear even larger.

Jupiter won't twinkle as other celestial bodies do in the night sky. Instead, it will appear as a steady light in the night sky.

It takes Jupiter 12 Earth years to orbit the sun.

According to KWQC TV 6, Jupiter is anywhere from 365 million to 600 million miles away from Earth depending on where it is in it's elliptical orbit.
