Tonight's Sky for June 2: Jupiter Sets 3 Hours After the Sun

At the start of the month, the planet Jupiter, 4
th brightest object in the sky, is setting about 3 hours after the Sun. For observing purposes, early June presents the last chance to catch Jupiter under a sort-of dark sky, provided you have a low Western horizon. As the month progresses, Jupiter will sink more into the twilight every day. By month's end, Jupiter will be setting only about an hour before the Sun as it heads for Conjunction, which is set for July.
