That bright object near the moon is Jupiter. The light from the moon takes about 1.5 seconds to reach us. Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system, is about 30 light minutes away. The storms in Oklahoma and Kansas will lift into the Great Lakes Wednesday and another strong wave will sweep our way with showers by Thursday but it will usher in much colder air for Friday and the weekend.
