If you’re at all like me… you’ve had the following conversation with yourself:

Yeah, so there’s this bright thing in the southern sky tonight, and it’s not the moon.

It’s, like, right above the brightest star in the Scorpius constellation… which I recognize because it’s summer and I was born in early November.

I wonder what it could be. Is it a star, or, like, a fuckin’ supernova or something?

Well wonder no more! Go download and install Stellarium. I snagged this open-source virtual planetarium for the ol’ Mac about a year ago, and it rocks your balls.

Trust. I’m your friendly neighborhood astronomical-type nerdboy. Represent.

p.s. It’s Jupiter.
