      Space Weather News for April 2, 2005
      http://spaceweather.com

      When Jupiter rises at sundown on Sunday, April 3rd, the giant planet will
      be at its closest to Earth all year long. Step outside, face east and
      look toward the horizon. To the naked eye, Jupiter resembles a very bright
      star, almost three times brighter than Sirius. Seen through a backyard
      telescope, that "star" reveals itself as a full-fledged world with clouds,
      spots and moons.

      If you miss Jupiter on April 3rd, don't worry. It will remain close to
      Earth, bright and easy to see, for many weeks to come. Visit
      Spaceweather.com for sky maps and images.
