By MARCIA DUNN, AP Aerospace Writer Marcia Dunn, Ap Aerospace Writer CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – Better catch Jupiter next week in the night sky. It won't be that big or bright again until 2022. Jupiter will pass 368 million miles from Earth late Monday, its closest approach since 1963. You can see it low in the east around dusk. Around midnight, it will be directly overhead. That's because Earth will be passing between Jupiter and the sun, into the wee hours of Tuesday.
