“When the moon is in the seventh house….and Jupiter aligns with Mars!”

Why does Jupiter have rings? Jupiter’s rings were discovered in 1979 by the passing Voyager 1 spacecraft, but their origin was a mystery. Data from the Galileo spacecraft that orbited Jupiter from 1995 to 2003 later confirmed that these rings were created by meteoroid impacts onsmall nearby moons. As a small meteoroid strikes tiny Adrastea, for example, it will bore into the moon, vaporize, and explode dirt and dust off into a Jovian orbitPictured above is an eclipse of the Sun by Jupiter, as viewed from Galileo. Small dust particles high in Jupiter’s atmosphere, as well as the dust particles that compose the rings, can be seen by reflected sunlight. I include it, because special things are a’happening……..!
