Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system, will come the closest it has to Earth in 59 years on Monday. The gaseous giant will be visible as it coincides with another event called 'opposition'.
The phenomenon happens every 13 months, as Jupiter appears brighter than any other time of the year. But, the planet has been coming closer to Earth since 1963. Due to Earth and Jupiter's differing orbits around the Sun, they do not pass each other at the same distance each time. When it is closest to Earth on Monday, Jupiter will be about 367 million miles
