Go outside with the kids tonight and search for Jupiter. Planet Jupiter is the brightest it will be all year and you don't even need a telescope to see it. 

The first part of the night is perfect to see Jupiter as the moon is rising an hour later. Just look up in the sky with your naked eye before midnight and search for the brightest 'star.' That's Jupiter. If you have a telescope, you can easily see the four moons called the Galilean satellites

According to the Farmers Almanac, you can also see Spica beneath Jupiter. Spica is the brightest star in the constellation of Virgo and is 260 light years away.
