Tonight is the night....!
WASHINGTON -- Jupiter will ring in the new
year by looming directly overhead at midnight,
as close to Earth as it will get all year.
This coincidence of the Earth's orbit and
Jupiter's hasn't happened since 1752 and won't
happen again until New Year's Eve 2084, said
Jack Horkheimer, director of the Miami Space
Transit Planetarium. Moreover, Jupiter will be
cozying up to a bright and nearly full moon
``It's kind of poetic to end this year of tragedy
and soul-searching with the biggest planet of
them all and our closest neighbor just bathing
us in planetary light,'' Horkheimer said
