Jupiter in a Blue Sky
Jupiter in a Blue Sky

Sometimes Jupiter is visible in the blue daytime sky. It's helpful when Jupiter appears near to the Moon, because that makes it easier to find in the sky.

Jupiter was easily visible to the naked eye; it's the object that looks like a star on the right. The Moon, on the left, is overexposed since otherwise Jupiter wouldn't have been bright enough in the photograph.
