Monday December 14th the giant planet gas Jupiter reaches the point along its orbit around the Sun where Jupiter would be described as being at western quadrature. It is at a 90o angle relative to the Earth and the Sun.
Where is Jupiter currently? Jupiter rises around midnight local time and is located high above the southern horizon at sunrise local time. Jupiter is below (as it rises), or east, from Denebola the tail star of Leo the Lion. Down to the left from Jupiter look for Mars, Venus, and possibly Comet Catalina (C/2013 US10).
