Jupiter will make its closest approach to Earth next week

Jupiter and its 4 moons will soon be visible with just binoculars

So for those who want a closer look at Jupiter, June is the flawless month to do it.

Jupiter, the mighty "king" of the planets in our solar system, is regularly visible for those who know where and when to look for it, but next week will be a particularly special time for anyone who wants to catch a glimpse of the gas giant. It was Jupiter. The massive gas giant planet is showing off for us Earthlings this month. Next week, it will make its closest approach to Earth and will be visible without a telescope. The best part is that you don't need fancy equipment to get a detailed view.

Here's what's going on in the solar system the rest of the month. So, mark your calendars for Monday, as it will be the best time of the year to see it.

The space agency also says the planet - our solar system's largest - will be visible to the naked eye, resembling a bright star in the night sky.

For space lovers and casual sky watchers worldwide, June is set to be a memorable month - even if you don't own a telescope.

"We basically line up between the sun, the Earth and Jupiter, which brings us to our closest point in the year".

June 14-19 will also provide a great view for sky-watchers as the moon, Jupiter and Saturn form what NASA calls a "beautiful lineup in the sky" that "changes each night as the moon moves in its orbit around Earth". Jupiter's four largest moons- Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto will be seen using binoculars. If you have a small telescope, you'll be able to see Jupiter's cloudy bands.
