Idealistic young American scientist Grant Archer joins /5. Jupiter is an extraordinarily colourful and dynamic planet. Over minutes, one can watch tiny shadows cast by its moons slide over its surface; over days and weeks parades of diverse, giant swirling storms can be seen to move and evolve.

It is because of this richness of visual and physical properties that Jupiter has intrigued amateur and professional astronomers and has. Jupiter has a very faint ring system, and an abundance (>60 and counting) of moons, mostly small. The largest (Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto) were discovered by Galileo, and can be seen through binoculars or a small telescope.
