Seeing Jupiter and Saturn in October

Saturn and Jupiter locations in the sky

Jupiter will be the brightest object in the night sky through October. Saturn can also be seen, even without a telescope. You can see them among the stars with just your eye, and you don’t need expensive equipment for a closer look – both are easy to see with just a pair of binoculars.
