“This is a good month to see Jupiter. To find our Solar System's largest planet in your sky, look toward the southeast just after sunset -- Jupiter should be the brightest object in that part of the sky. If you have binoculars or a small telescope, you should be able to see Jupiter's four brightest moons right nearby, and possibly some cloud bands. The featured image was taken about a month ago from the Persian Gulf. The image shows Jupiter just to the right of the nearly vertical band of the central disk of our Milky Way Galaxy. The unnamed rock formations appear in projection like the jaws of a giant monster ready to engulf the Jovian giant. When you see Jupiter, it may be interesting to know that NASA's robotic Juno spacecraft is simultaneously visiting and studying the giant planet. Saturn is also visible this month, and although it is nearby to Jupiter, it is not as bright.”

Good question, mereagle. The blurb above says to see Jupiter by looking to the southeast just after sunset. I am thinking the light must be coming from a city. Thanks for the visit!

Could be an alligator or interesting rock formation or maybe a piece of driftwood, but it makes a stunning photo and fun puzzle. Is the golden glow in the lower left from a fire or sunset or a light ?

Bill_I_Am

Sorry, folks. We're down to seven planets.

Alligator swallows Jupiter. Tell NASA.

Thanks, Cyndi!

I thought I was the only one that saw a large alligator, but I'm always seeing things that others don't. Another amazing photo Bill.

Robbie, thanks for setting me straight. I absolutely believe you. I saw something like that too but didn't have your tropical knowledge to explain it coherently! ;-)

Thanks so much for the info and very enjoyable puzzle Bill. However.........I don't believe any of it!.......This is clearly a large Alligator Snapping Turtle with it's jaws open, resting on a deep water summit blowing bubbles to attract prey! Hee hee!!!
