Photographer captures Jupiter from his garden as it approaches the Earth
Jupiter is set to get closer to Earth in 59 years on Monday.
Naturally, it would still be over 360 million miles away. But scientists say, stargazers haven’t had this opportunity since October 1963 when it might be seen clearly.
An astrophotographer, Andrew McCarthy, is on his way to capture the giant gas. He has already taken some stunning pictures in such detail that it looks like a huge marble floating in space.
According to MailOnline, he took those pictures from his backyard.
McCarthy’s photos clearly show the red spots on Jupiter and its cloud strips.
McCarthy, who is known to his followers as Cosmic-Background, said it was the “clearest shot” he has managed of the planet.
