Jupiter's Moon callisto Cast Shadow Onto Jupiter's Cloud Top
I got my start in astronomy at about the same time Voyager arrived at Jupiter. After being exposed to Star Wars, Carl Segan and those images of Jupiter by Voyager resistance was futile. Soon after that I received a catalog from a company called Orion telescope and Binocular. I didn't ask for the catalog so I just knew it had to have been the FORCE. My first item I ordered was a KE 40mm eyepiece which I still use today.
