Jupiter in 2015-16
New BAA Jupiter Section web pages
These pages will be used for posting reports on Jupiter in the 2015/16 apparition. In order to facilitate comparison with NASA image products during the forthcoming Juno mission, we will post maps and images with north up, and may sometimes show System III longitude. All our previous reports used the historic conventions of south up and System II longitude, and if time permits we will continue to produce these in addition to the north-up versions.
The previous Jupiter Section web pages are still active, at:
These contain a great deal of material including:
–‘Reference Articles’ (list of major phenomena and features, with links to our reports which contain substantial information about them);
–‘Guides’ (several overviews of the planet);
–‘Reports’ (all our reports on previous apparitions since 2005, up to 2014/15, for which reports are still being added);
–‘Publications’ (including PDFs of many of them).
NASA’s Juno spacecraft is due to go into orbit around Jupiter on 2016 July 5. For information about amateur involvement with the mission, see:
