    For those who observe planets, like Jupiter.
    
    If you aim at jupiter, you can catch Neptune near it.
    
    I aimed at it, and capture the view on video.

    Neptune is the star shown at the top left.
    
    Jupiter's moon's Ganymede is on the left of jupiter, and Callisto is on the right. Europa is washed out by the glare of jupiter.
    
    The bright star to the right of Jupiter is Mu Cap.
    
    This is all I really got to observe tonight. The clouds came as the sun went down, and left as the sun came up. 
    
    Looks like tonight, I could be clouded out again.
