    Amalthea (bahasa Yunani: Ἀμάλθεια) adalah satelit Jupiter dengan urutan ketiga bila dilihat dari jarak Jupiter dengan satelit-satelitnya. Amalthea ditemukan pada tanggal 9 September , oleh Edward Emerson Barnard.. Amalthea dinamai berdasarkan tokoh nimfa bernama Amalteia dari mitologi Yunani, yang menyusui Bayi Zeus (padanan mitologi Yunani untuk Dewa Jupiter) dengan susu kambing. NASA satellite observations help study and predict weather, drought, pollution, climate change, and many other phenomena that affect the environment, economy and society.

    the craft spent years visiting Jupiter’s moons and delving into their structures and properties. This book attempts to convey the creativity, leadership, and vision that were necessary for the mission’s success. It is a book about dedicated people and their scientific and engineering achievements. One of the earliest recorded observations of Jupiter dates back to the fifth century, and can be found in an Indian astronomical text called the Surya Siddhanta. The text attempts to calculate the diameter of the planet. Then, in the eighth century there is another attempt to estimate the diameter of the planet by an Islamic astronomer.

    On October 7, , a group of astronomers led by Scott S. Sheppard reported the discovery of 20 new satellites orbiting Saturn, which increases their total number to 82, thereby making Saturn the record holder for the number of satellites. The observations were carried out using the ground-based 8-meter telescope “Subaru”.   Jupiter is the largest planet and, by far, the largest object in the solar system save for the Sun. The planet is x as massive as all other planets combined. Like Saturn, Jupiter is a “gas giant”, a massive planet made up almost entirely of cold hydrogen and helium gas along with traces of other gases like ammonia and methane.

Chinese historian Xi Zezong claimed that the earliest record of a Jovian moon (Ganymede or Callisto) was a note by Chinese astronomer Gan De of an observation around BC regarding a "reddish star".

However, the first certain observations of Jupiter's satellites were those of Galileo Galilei in By Januaryhe had sighted the four massive Galilean moons with his 20× magnification.

In he made observations of a nova and was the first to Discovery and observations of a fifth satellite to Jupiter book the gaseous emissions, thus deducing that it was a stellar explosion.

The same year he also discovered Amalthea, the fifth moon of Jupiter. He was the first to discover a new moon of Jupiter since Galileo Galilei in This was the last satellite discovered by visual.

Neptune - Neptune - Neptune’s discovery: Neptune is the only giant planet that is not visible without a telescope. Having an apparent magnitude ofit is approximately one-fifth as bright as the faintest stars visible to the unaided eye.

Hence, it is fairly certain that there were no observations of Neptune prior to the use of telescopes. DISCOVERY AND EARLY OBSERVATIONS OF AMALTHEA Jupiter's fifth satellite was discovered on the night of September 9, by E.

Barnard at the Lick Observatory (Barnard, a). Since July 1, Barnard had been allotted the use of the observatory's new 36" refractor-then the most powerful telescope for planetary work in existence-for one night. Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun and the largest in the Solar is a gas giant with a mass one-thousandth that of the Sun, but two-and-a-half times that of all the other planets in the Solar System combined.

Jupiter is one of the brightest objects visible to the naked eye in the night sky, and has been known to ancient civilizations since before recorded history. Erratum [Discovery and observations of a fifth satellite to Jupiter] Barnard, E. Abstract. Publication: The Astronomical Journal.

Burnham, the well-known astronomer who recently. Venus, Jupiter's supervolcanic moon Io and Neptune's big satellite Triton are in NASA's crosshairs. Those three cosmic objects are the focus of the four finalists for NASA's next round of.

He soon made his first astronomical discovery. At the time, most scientists believed that the Moon was a smooth sphere, but Galileo discovered that the Moon has mountains, pits, and other features, just like the Earth.

When Galileo pointed his telescope at Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, he made a startling discovery. With this discovery and his observations of the phases of Venus later that same year, Galileo gave us proof of a heliocentric universe. Earth was not fixed at. Simon Marius claimed to have observed Jupiter's moon as early as late November (about five weeks prior to Galileo) and had begun recording his observations in January at about the same time Galileo was first making his observations.

However, since Marius did not publish his observations right away as Galileo had done, his claims were impossible to verify. Oct 6, Launch from the cargo bay of Space Shuttle Discovery. Feb 8, Ulysses became the fifth spacecraft to reach Jupiter.

Jun Nov 6, Observations of Sun's south pole. Jun 19 and Ulysses passed over Sun's north polar regions. Closest approach to Sun (about million miles or million kilometers).

A method is described for obtaining and reducing a series of photographic observations of the fifth satellite and the disk of Jupiter against a background of stars.

A discussion of these and earlier observations leads to revised values for the mean motion and the regression of the nodes. Callisto / k ə ˈ l ɪ s t oʊ /, or Jupiter IV, is the second-largest moon of Jupiter, after is the third-largest moon in the Solar System after Ganymede and Saturn's largest moon Titan, and the largest object in the Solar System that may not be properly to was discovered in by Galileo km in diameter, Callisto has about 99% the diameter.

Jupiter - Jupiter - The Galilean satellites: Galileo proposed that the four Jovian moons he discovered in be named the Medicean stars, in honour of his patron, Cosimo II de’ Medici, but they soon came to be known as the Galilean satellites in honour of their discoverer.

Galileo regarded their existence as a fundamental argument in favour of the Copernican model of the solar system, in. Jupiter's fifth moon, Io, is the most volcanically active body in the solar system. Plumes of sulfur spew upward as high as miles ( kilometers).

The surface of Io is splotched with lava. Discovery and naming. Amalthea was found on September 9, by Edward Emerson Barnard using the 36 inch (91 cm) telescope at Lick Observatory. It was the first new moon of Jupiter since Galileo Galilei's discovery of the Galilean moons in The moon is named after the nymph Amalthea from Greek mythology who nursed the infant Zeus (the Greek equivalent of Jupiter) with goat's milk.

InAmerican astronomer Edward Emerson Barnard discovered Amalthea, a fifth satellite orbiting Jupiter, but it would be decades before astronomers got their next good look at .Sidereus Nuncius Galileo's First Jupiter Observations.

Sidereus Nuncius, published inis Galileo's account of his first astronomical observations using a found that the surface of the Moon, like Earth, is rough and uneven, that the Milky Way and several nebulas are made up of numerous stars too faint to see individually with the naked eye, and most famously, that Jupiter has.
