A photo of Jupiter from the Hubble Space Telescope with the gas giant's Great Red Spot clearly visible. Jupiter will be at its biggest and brightest in our sky this week, giving those on Earth our best chance of the year to see the gas giant and four of its moons. Jupiter -- our solar system's largest planet -- will be at its closest point to Earth on Monday, June 10, according to NASA. It will...Read more from Google News
