A distant heavenly body will be easy to spot on Monday night.

Despite being 550 million miles away, Jupiter will be visible around sunset.

"The best time to look is just after sunset," said KTAR's Dr. Sky. "It continues through most of the evening, but it's best toward the early evening hours -- anytime after 6 p.m. until about 9 [p.m.] -- and it's easy to see with the naked eye."

The gas giant will be visible because of a conjunction, when it appears very close to the moon. Light reflected from the moon will illuminate the planet.
