Jupiter in September 2010

Blogged by Xiao Sun on October 6, 2010 and tagged with Sample Images, Jupiter.

Jupiter was at opposition on 21 September. It has never been closer to us since 1963. Many astrophotographers make most of this unique opportunity to capture amazing pictures of the giant planet. Here are two Jupiter photos taken by John Earl, based in Bundaberg, Australia.
