The moon's orbit and placement each day can't really be compared to Jupiter equally. Jupiter's orbit is very long and will appear to only move slightly each night, the moon will appear in dramatically different places each night.

I thought that was Venus this time of year. If that's Jupiter than where is Venus. Does it come up later than Jupiter then? That must be the case.edit on 9-11-2011 by randyvs because: (no reason given)
