All alone in the dark.....appears a light disk, with several bright specks trailing it.

As the view comes closer, we realize that the disc is Jupiter, and the specks are the moons. When we get close enough to see the bands of clouds moving, we start rotating the planet. You can see the sun's shadow upon the planet, and when we rotate into the correct position, we see the sun and it's reflections. Every so often a moon speeds by. I noticed a faint but definite ring, and since in school we never called Jupiter a ringed planet, I must speculate that this ring is new, perhaps debris from the comet's collision?

You can change the video mode, change animation speed, enable random sequence, and enable ignore mouse move.

There is a small, transparent nag screen, which registering will remove.
