Two Oppositions in July 2020

I enjoy looking at the two major planets, especially the motions of their Moons. It gives me a real 3D feel about space.

Jupiter is at opposition on July 14th and Saturn on July 21st. So, the they can be viewed and compared with each other at their best. Previously, I have thought Jupiter was the more impressive when compared like this, but, as I get older my taste in many things is changing, so I may be in for a surprise.

Though close for most of 2nd half of the year, they are not in conjunction till December and may be to near the Sun to be seen.
