Jupiter, the king of all planets, is visible with the naked eye this weekend. But how do you find it? Look towards the southern sky.

“You can't miss it. It's the brightest star-like object in the night sky,” says Andrew Fazekas, The Night Sky Guy.

Using a telescope, you'll be able to see Jupiter's cloud bands and great red spot -- a hurricane three times the size of Earth. With a pair of binoculars, look to the upper left of Jupiter to see Uranus on Saturday.

On Sunday and Wednesday, look toward the moon to spot beautiful star clusters.
