Tonight's Sky for June 30: Jupiter Sets a Hour After the Sun

At the end of the month, the planet Jupiter, 4th brightest object in the sky, is setting just about an hour after the Sun. For observing purposes, late June/early July presents the last chance to catch Jupiter in the twilight sky. As the days progress, Jupiter will sink more into the twilight every day. By the middle of next month, the king of the plants will be lost in the Sun's glare.
