An interesting fact, even though Jupiter is about 11 times wider than Earth and about 12 times wider than Venus, Venus was actually the brighter star in the sky!
This painting is a just a small reminder to look up.
Special thanks to Phil Plait, The Bad Astronomer, for showing me the two planets as they had just began to drift apart last night and for teaching me a few things about the spacecraft Juno that is currently taking some fantastic photos of the planet Jupiter. I'm sure Juno will inspire some more Jupiter art from me in the near future and when it does I will share some more of what I learned.
This painting is dedicated to my husband Johnny because yesterday was his birthday. <3
