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.
