The Radio JOVE Team, together with the Society of Amateur Radio Astronomers (SARA), is pleased to announce a joint meeting this summer at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, West Virginia. This year's SARA meeting will take place from Sunday June 29 through the morning of Friday July 4, 2014.
Registration information and a detailed schedule of the Radio JOVE conference activities can be found on the SARA web site.
Jupiter was at opposition (the point where it is on the direct opposite side of the Earth from the Sun) on Jan. 5th, 2014. Jupiter is currently well placed for evening observing. The conjunction in 2014 will occur on July 24, 2014, so, if we assume that the observing season ends about two months before that, we have until approximately May, 2014 for our current Jupiter watch.
Remember that you can submit your observations of Jupiter radio emissions to the Radio JOVE Data Archive.
For about a decade the Radio Jove project has been enabling participants to share their observations through the Radio Jove archive; approximately 6000 observations are now available online. However, in early 2012 the data submission function to the archive was turned off. For the last several months we have been researching other options to re-enable this option and I am pleased to announce that the archive is now ready to receive your observations once again!
The location of the archive has changed. Please visit: http://radiojove.org/archive.html
Please note that submitters of Radio JOVE data will need a new password. Please contact Leonard Garcia for more information.
