And here is Jupiter. Jupiter is the biggest planet in the solar system. You could fit a thousand earths in it. See how it appears to be flickering in some pictures and almost looks like there are waves of water over it. This is because it is spinning very very fast! Much faster then Earth. We could see it spin, and the effect is described as flattening it out, kind of like pizza dough. And it really did look like that!
Jupiter has at least 50 moons. And I was able to see and snap the closest three!! Yes, the moons of Jupiter! I was so excited! So here is Jupiter, and I hope you can see the three specks that are it's moons circling it. And all without a tripod!
“There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another. The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor.”
1 Corinthians 15
P.S. I just got word that one of my best friends has died at 11:05 P.M. I have been sitting in the hospital with her for the last few evenings. I will be taking off from blogging for a day to be with her family.
