Observed in the sky of Egypt and the Arab world after sunset tomorrow Saturday 01 August 2020 and the beginning of the night the increasing humping moon near the planet Jupiter is the giant of our solar system in a phenomenon easily seen with the naked eye.
The occurrence of the moon near Jupiter is intended only on the dome of the sky, as they are not close to each other in space. The moon is about 380,000 km away from us, while the buyer is more than 624,698,467 km.
The astronomical society in Jeddah revealed in a report that the planet Jupiter is the fourth brightest object in the dome of the sky after the sun, moon, and flower, and it will appear as a bright white spot for the observer with the naked eye, and when observing through the telescope or a small telescope, he will see the disk of the planet and around it the four large moons known as “moons” Galileo “which is: Ganymede, Callisto, Europa, Iowa – where they appear as small light points near Jupiter.
During the night hours these bodies will all move outward to the west as a result of the rotation of the Earth around its axis, but the true movement of the moon is eastward in relation to the stars.
By observing the position of the moon at the same time each day, he will notice that its movement is eastward in relation to the stars and planets in the zodiac – for every hour the moon cuts about half a degree eastward and every day the moon cuts 13 degrees in front of the constellations in the zodiac.
Therefore, on the next day, he will notice that the moon has moved away from Jupiter, pushing eastward, which is its natural movement in orbit around the Earth.
