Followup on Spotting Jupiter

A couple weeks ago, I wrote how Kai mentioned that 3:30 AM was the best time to see the planet Jupiter. At the time, I said that I did not know if he made up this information. Well, I now know that he did not make it up, and that it was actually the case.

Little did I realize that the Chicago Tribune publishes the best viewing time for all visible planets every day on its weather page. Kai had spotted the information in small print located near the bottom of the page, and remembered it later when it was his bedtime. On that particular day, the best time to see Jupiter in the sky was indeed 3:30 AM.

I never should have doubted him.
