The biggest planet in the solar system will be so close to Earth this month that its largest moons will be visible with binoculars, according to NASA.

The largest planet in the solar system will be on full display in June - and stargazers won't need a high-powered telescope to get a good view, NASA recently announced.

For space lovers and casual sky watchers worldwide, June is set to be a memorable month - even if you don't own a telescope.

Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun, the fastest-spinning planet and the biggest in the Solar System. The spacecraft was launched so scientists could study Jupiter's composition and evolution, and is now orbiting the planet.

NASA says that while Jupiter will only be at its closest point for one night, the entire month of June should be prime for Jupiter-gazing: "Jupiter reaches opposition on June 10". This alignment occurs once a year, when Earth "laps" Jupiter in orbit. Regardless, this distinction won't make too much of a difference for the purposes of casual viewing.

Jupiter and its four largest moons will be visible with just a pair of binoculars this month. And, unlike other astronomical phenomena, your geographical location on Earth shouldn't impact your ability view Jupiter, provided you have clear skies and minimal light pollution.

Lucky viewers might also "glimpse a hint of the banded clouds" that surround the planet, NASA said.
