  1. “We found that Jupiter tends to do interesting things behind the sun and we can’t see it,” Simon-Miller said.

    Coincidence? You be the judge…

    But seriously…Yeah, I too have found Jupiter’s paterns fascinating since I was a kid. I once got to see it (and the four Galilean moons) through a telescope–not at great enough resolution to see the Red Spot, but I could see the bands. I really found it quite thrilling.
