Picture-of-the-Week

Jupiter as viewed by member of the FIU Presidents Council

After the amazing presidents council "end-of-fiscal-year" meeting in which the Stocker Astroscience center was prominently featured by both the out-going council chair and the in-coming chair, we trekked across campus with some interested attendees to tour the Stocker Center. It was such a beautiful evening that we opened the dome and took some images of Jupiter through the FIU 24" telescope. Note the prominent red spot and the banding in Jupiter's atmosphere. As a souvenir of their visit, each person was sent this color image produced from the raw images taken that evening. Here it is for everyone to enjoy!
