    Parent and child?

    Strange to think that from Earth it takes longer to travel to Jupiter (5.2 AU from the sun) than to the Sun. It would take a while to get a sunburn on Jupiter.

    Jupiter is 90% Hydrogen and estimated to be 25,000 degrees C at it’s center.

    We should immediately ban Hydrogen.

    Was out Saturday morning early hiking, and saw that pair…was wonderful to see.

    Jupiter and it’s moons are always interesting in a decent telescope. Venus on the other hand is a bright white ball bore. No colors, no contrasts, no detail.

      Venus can be a lovely crescent though. I’ve been watching this pair over the last couple of weeks as they have been closing in on each other. They formed a lovely equilateral triangle with Antares about a week ago.

    Awesome. I have been noticing the two and wasn’t sure what they were, by the time I get to a computer, I’ve forgotten all about it. I need to get a decent telescope again….
