Full moon Sunday night and its conjunction with Jupiter

Local News

If you saw the moon Saturday night, you know how bright it was! 

Technically, it will be a full moon Sunday at 7:58 p.m. There is something else that is special about Sunday’s night sky.

There is a “conjunction” of the moon with Jupiter Sunday and Monday evenings just after sunset in the southeastern sky. Sunset is at 7:32 p.m.

That means that Jupiter will be right below the full moon during the early evening.
