Jupiter is closest to Earth in 59 years, says NASA

The solar system’s most massive planet, Jupiter, will make its closest approach to Earth in 59 years on September 26, although the gas giant will be directly opposite the Sun as seen from Earth, an astronomical arrangement known as opposition.

Resistance is common too Jupiterhappens every 13 months, and the planet and Earth approach about once a year. The event that sees Earth in between sun and Jupiter rarely coincides with the massive planet’s closest approach to our planet, known as perigee. But on this occasion, opposition occurs on September 26 and closest approach on September 25.
