Bright Jupiter and Mars shine from the eastern sky this morning as seen from the Chicago area.  (Click the image to see it larger.)   Bright Jupiter is high in the eastern sky among the stars of Gemini with Castor and Pollux nearby.  Mars is lower in the eastern sky among the stars of Leo, 44 degrees to the lower left of Jupiter and 4 to the lower left of Regulus.  Mars continues its rapid motion toward the east as compared to the starry background.
