Jupiter is bright tonight

South East. With a pair of binoculars and a steady hand it is possible to identify the Galilean moons the four largest moons of Jupiter—Io,Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto.

I should have looked out earlier as it was very dark here. No street lights, probably some consequence of BST.

They've just come on.
