Moonrise on Jupiter

About this artwork


An arora forms at the top of Jupiter as the moons chase each other around the planet. Storms churn in increasingly elaborate patterns. At only a fraction the size of the sun Jupiter is our largest planet, and still a long way from having the density it needs to burn even as bright as a brown dwarf star. One of our protectors Jupiter deflects or absorbs many would be earth killers before they can reach us.
