REALM OF THE GIANT

Jupiter, which comes to opposition this month, is larger than all
the other planets put together. It resembles the Sun more so than
the Earth and, like the Sun, it has its own retinue of worlds. In this
presentation we take a close look at this giant and explore some
of its exotic moons. This will include Io with its lakes of molten
sulphur, the oceanic world of Europa, the crystal-like terrain of
Ganymede and the crater-smothered surface of Callisto.


OBSERVING EVENING
Saturday 21 February

6pm in Carterton for drinks and an evening meal

The observing evening will only proceed if the weather is favourable. Note that the weather in the Wairarapa
can often be very different to that in Wellington or the Kapiti Coast. If in doubt check the web page at
