A description of Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, which includes information on its numerous moons, space probes which have studied it, and the 1994 collision of comet remnants with the planet.
Of all the portions of the universe we see in the sky, the most spectacular is the Sun. Our very own star, the Sun is ruler of the Solar System. When it is shining, it drowns out everything else. When clouds cover the Sun, the day is gloomy. At night, when the Sun is not overhead, the sky is dark. All the world depends on the Sun. Topics include sunspots, flares, prominences, the Sun's atmosphere, upcoming solar eclipses, and the Sun's vital importance to life on Earth.
Perhaps the most mysterious and intriguing planet in our Solar System is Mars. Is there life on Mars? Have Martian canals been found? Timely topics include information relayed from Mars to Earth by probes, new missions to Mars, and speculation about the colonization of Mars.
