  Jupiter Jupiter: Astronomy: Jupiter - Speed of Light-THE GALILEAN MOONS AND THE SPEED OF LIGHT

THE GALILEAN MOONS AND THE SPEED OF LIGHT

On 7 January 1610, .Galileo Galilei (1564-1642), professor of mathematics at the University of Padua; aimed a new device of some glass lenses mounted in a piece of organ pipe—he called it a "perspicillum"—toward the'southeastern sky. There, to the upper ' right of the gibbous Moon, was Jupiter, a bright dot of light.

  Jupiter Jupiter: Astronomy: Jupiter - Solar System-SOLAR SYSTEM POT-STIRRER

SOLAR SYSTEM POT-STIRRER

With its great mass, Jupiter exerts a major influence on the orbital mechanics of the asteroids and comets that pass near it. In the early Solar System, it prevented any planet from forming in the region that is now the asteroid belt by winnowing the population of large planetesimals in that vicinity. (Planetesimals are the small bodies that coalesced to form the planets.)

  Jupiter Jupiter: Astronomy: Jupiter - Sketching Tool-SKETCHING TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES

SKETCHING TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES

Sketching Jupiter is a rewarding and useful way to train your eye to see more, and capturing the details on paper will . give you an outstanding familiarity with the planet's features. You have to work quickly, however, spending no more than 10 minutes on each sketch because Jupiter's rotation is fast enough to alter the view on time-scales longer than this.

  Jupiter Jupiter: Astronomy: Jupiter - Rotation-ROUND AND ROUND

ROUND AND ROUND

Jupiter is still cooling off from its formation, and the heat fuels phenomena ranging from the planet's immense magnetic field to convection currents in its clouds. The light-colored zones tend to be high, cool clouds in regions ofupdrafts, while the darker belts mark warmer areas of downdrafts.

  Jupiter Jupiter: Astronomy: Jupiter - Photograph-JOVIAN PHOTOS

JOVIAN PHOTOS

For a planet whose brightness averages magnitude —2.5 (exceeded only by Venus), Jupiter can be surprisingly difficult to photograph well. Its small size demands the use of eyepiece projection and exposures of several seconds, during which seeing conditions may blur fine details.

  Jupiter Jupiter: Astronomy: Jupiter - Particle-PARTICLES AND FIELDS

PARTICLES AND FIELDS

The Jovian world is more than what we see. If our eyes could see Jupiter's magnetosphere, it would be a highly impressive sight, with an apparent diameter equal to four times that of the Moon. The magnetosphere is a vast, complex structure full of fleeting charged particles.

OCCULTATIONS OF JUPITER

The Moon occasionally covers up, Or occults, a planet of star, producing a sight not to be missed, Occupations of jupiter are particularly captivating because the planet is relatively large in the telescope's field of view.

OBSERVING JUPITER

Jupiter is one of the planet watcher's greatest delights. It offers a wealth of ever-changing detail that can be seen in almost any telescope. It also rewards patience, since observers who take the time to become familiar with this planet benefit the most.

MINIATURE SOLAR SYSTEM

When Galileo discovered Jupiter's four large moons— Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto—he was excited to see that Jupiter mimicked the Copernican model of the Solar System.
