Jupiter at Western Quadrature – 2020

   Sunday October 11th the ringed giant gas planet 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 is over the southern horizon at sunset local time and is located within the eastern side of the constellation Sagittarius the Archer. Off to the left from Jupiter, or further east is Saturn. Dwarf Planet Ceres, while not visible to the naked-eye, has just risen above the horizon.
