Take a look in the night sky tonight, because Jupiter is going to be very bright – the brightest it will be until 2022 sources say (yes, I read some other astro blogs!). Apparently, what is happening is that the Earth is passing between Jupiter and the Sun, making our solar system’s largest planet look even bigger. I wonder if this will have any effect on the tides (like the moon does), and hence our selves? A new kind of “full moon fever?”
