RADIO STORMS ON JUPITER
Space Weather News for April 13, 2009
http://spaceweather.com

On April 11th, an amateur radio astronomer in New Mexico heard loud
pops and crackles coming from the loudspeaker of his shortwave
receiver. The sounds resembled terrestrial lightning, but the source
was not on Earth. It was a radio storm on Jupiter. You can listen to
the sounds on today's edition of http://spaceweather.com

Astronomers have long known that Jupiter produces strong shortwave
radio bursts detectable from Earth; the fact of Jupiter's "radio
activity" is not news. However, now may be the best time in decades to
listen to the giant planet. The sun is in the pits of a century-level
solar minimum. Low solar activity increases the transparency of
Earth's atmosphere to shortwave radio waves, allowing signals from
Jupiter to more easily and clearly reach the ground. At the same time,
terrestrial radio interference subsides (another side-effect of solar
minimum), so Jupiter bursts are easier to identify.

2009 is going to be a good year for Jupiter. The planet is moving away
from the sun and may now be seen shining brightly in the eastern sky
before dawn. Students, teachers and amateur scientists who wish to try
listening as well as watching should consider building their own radio
telescope. Kits are available from NASA's Radio JOVE program:

This is suposed to be listenable on shortwave, about 20 MHz, wideband.

Awesome, thanks for posting this. You have to go back a few days from the main page to get to the Jupiter stuff. Here is a direct link.

Good, you posted it. Freaky stuff. Listen to the slowed-down recording to never sleep at night again.

I never knew about this Web site. It's awesome. Lots of cool information.

Seeing the planets when they are visible from Earth is something I always want to do, but I never take the time to figure out when they can be seen. Sounds like this is the year to check out Jupiter.
