Welcome to Jupiter!

The Juno Mission arrived safely in orbit around Jupiter on Monday night. A group of more than 200 Boiseans watched NASA TV’s live-stream of the insertion at our Jupiter-viewing event on Boise State’s campus.

The event was tremendous, and I was very gratified with all the enthusiasm of our local astrophiles. Special thanks to the Boise Astronomical Society and to my student volunteers for helping out.

Several folks asked about donating to support these events. If you want to donate, visit the following link — http://bit.ly/DonateToBSUAstro.




NASA’s Juno Mission, designed to probe Jupiter’s deep interior and unlock the origin of the solar system, will arrive at the planet on July 4th.

Stay up late with Boise State Physics to celebrate on July 4th 10p-12a on the Brady Street Garage. Come watch the fireworks and stay to view Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars.

Free public parking will be provided by Boise State University in the Brady Garage (accessible from Brady Street).
