Engineer Majed Abu Zahira, President of the Astronomical Society in Jeddah, said that he is observing in the sky of the Arab world the conjunction of the moon with Jupiter, the giant of our solar system, today, Friday, after sunset and the beginning of the night, as they will be separated by about two degrees in a very beautiful view easily seen with the naked eye.
He added, “This conjunction will occur and the Moon will be in its increasing humpback phase, which is the brightest spot in the night sky.” The presence of the moon near Jupiter means only on the dome of the sky, as they are not close to each other in space.
Jupiter is the fourth brightest object in the sky’s dome after the sun, moon and Venus, and it will appear as a bright white dot to the observer with the naked eye. , Iowa – They appear as small points of light near Jupiter.
During the night hours, all these bodies apparently move towards the west as a result of the Earth’s rotation on its axis, but the real movement of the moon is towards the east in relation to the stars.
By observing the position of the moon at the same time every day, he notices that its movement is towards the east in relation to the stars and planets in the zodiac circle, so on the next day it will be noticed that the moon has moved away from Jupiter and rushes towards the east, which is its natural movement in orbit around the earth.
