I had a chance to see Jupiter Saturday night! The Forsyth Astronomical Society (FAS) had a public observation event at Pilot Mountain State Park. I looked at the moon quite a bit, too. To be able to see those objects in such great detail is amazing. When I was in college I got to view Saturn one night, but I had forgotten how incredible it is. The FAS holds four public viewings a year. I plan on being at the next one!
The FAS members were extremely friendly and eager to share their knowledge.
