Clouds might not cooperate the entire time, but some breaks through the evening the new few nights should help you find Jupiter, said Storm Cente r7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini. You have a bright waxing gibbous moon to guide you. The moon will get bigger each night as it heads closer to its full phase. After sunset, look outside to the southeast sky.

June 22 and 23, the moon will be very close to Jupiter which will shine bright and not twinkle. June 24 and 25, the moon will drop off to the bottom left of the planet.
