Recently went out for an early morning walk and was lucky enough to see the moon (Nothing unusual about that) and Jupiter, more or less next to each other. Unfortuantely didnt have my binoculars with me, but was good to see never the less...

Jupiter is in it's prime now at about -2.8, you can see the 4 brighter moons, Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto, with binoculars as long as they are good 10x50's.
