Jupiter can actually be viewed at night during clear sky from earth close to the borders of the oceanic frontiers where the reflection of ocean at times may be greenish or sky blue.
You can find Jupiter nestled among the stars of the constellation of Gemini the Twins, sporting a bright, the glowing sunlight propagates its yellowish tinge of magnitude -2.7. A view through binoculars may expose a tiny disc with up to four reflection positioned points of light spaced out either side of it. These are the Galilean moons of Jupiter – Io, Ganymede, Europa and Callisto. You can watch them change position as they orbit around the giant planet almost on an hourly basis and you can certainly note the changes of position from night to night.
A small telescope will show you a lot more. Magnifications of 50x to 100x will show considerable detail, including some of the cloud belts and possibly the Great Red Spot. Earth’s atmospheric conditions will affect what and how much you can see, so be prepared to experiment with more, or even less, magnification.
