Jupiter Without Moons:

On 2-3 September 2009, Jupiter will have no moon appearance as seen from Earth.

The planet Jupiter can usually be seen with all or some of its four largest moons in binoculars and small telescopes.
It is very rare for it to be seen otherwise.
But late on this night in most of the Western Hemisphere, the planet will be visible with no moons for nearly two hours.
