Head To The Darkest Spot In Wisconsin To See Jupiter And Its Moons This Month

We’ve been lucky to have some truly spectacular celestial events in recent years. Here in Wisconsin, we’re in a great position to see yearly meteor showers and sometimes even the Northern Lights. This year, it’s also an awesome time to see Jupiter, as the fifth planet from the sun is at its biggest and brightest in the night sky. The solar system’s biggest planet, Jupiter is often visible with the naked eye, but the coming weeks are a great time to take out the binoculars or telescope to get amazingly good views of the planet and its moons.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
