For the second time this month, the moon is going to pay a visit to Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system.
On Sunday and Monday evenings (Jan. 29 and  30), a fat, waxing crescent moon will appear to slide past the planet Jupiter. Of course, the moon is much closer to Earth than Jupiter and as such, can change its position against the background stars rather quickly.
