CAIRO – 4 April 2018: On April 4, the Waning Gibbous moon will meet Jupiter a few hours before midnight until sunrise in a phenomenon that can be observed with the naked eye in the skies of the Arab region, according to Jeddah Astronomy Society.
In April 2018, Jupiter appears at about 9 p.m. and remains for the rest of the night.
By the end of April, Jupiter will be spotted in the skies of the Arab world after sunset, in preparation for its meeting with the sun on May 9.
