Jupiter showing the Great Red Spot.

Past Event

Jupiter and its Moons

The presentation about Jupiter starts from the time of the The Ancients when the second brightest object in the night sky was first noticed. It continues with the discovery of Jupiter's four largest Moons and the controversy this caused. It tells about the huge size of Jupiter and the terrifying storms that rage in its sky, about the four Galilean Moons, Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto, about Jupiter's rings, and the recent impact of Shoemaker-Levy 9 in 1993 into Jupiter. It continues with the missions to and beyond the Jovian system by NASA and the new planned ESA JUICE mission. The story finally ends with some examples of what you could see if you looked for Jupiter yourself today. This presentation has many detailed colour pictures taken by space craft orbiting Jupiter and its moons.
