Jupiter Closest To Earth In 50 Years

As the article states, astronomers have noted comets and asteroids have been hitting the planet recently. A little known fact is that there are many variables needed to sustain life. One of them is a large protector planet like Jupiter which shields the earth from being bombarded by many comets and asteroids.

As the article states, Uranus is also visible as it is in alignment with Jupiter. You'll probably need binoculars or a telescope though to see it.
