"Although closest approach is May 6th, the best night to look is May 11th when the full Moon and Jupiter appear side by side. The pair will rise in tandem at sunset and remain beautifully close together all night long. With a telescope you can quickly scan back and forth: The lunar Alps. The moons of Jupiter. The Sea of Tranquillity. The Great Red Spot."

Well spotted :D

Although, it won't be easy viewing surface detail on Jupiter with all that Moonglow...

It will be kinda neat to watch them change positions over the evening.

Not sure what you mean WH?

Just that you will see the moon and Jupiter change position relative to each other as the evening progresses.
