Radio JOVE Conference via Webcast

The Radio JOVE Team, together with the Society of Amateur Radio Astronomers (SARA), will hold 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.

For those who can't attend in person, the SARA and Radio JOVE Conference will be webcast by NRAO. The video stream address will be mms:// The video streaming format is Windows Media Video; playable on Windows, Macs or Linux computers with the required codec installed (e.g., in Windows Media Player, VLC for Mac/Linux, or mplayer on Linux).

New Location for 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:

Please note that submitters of Radio JOVE data will need a new password. Please contact Leonard Garcia for more information.

Juno Mission on its way to Jupiter
Lego figurines launched with JunoNASA's next mission to Jupiter is on its way to make an in-depth study of the gas giant. Among the science to be conducted by Juno are high resolution measurements of Jupiter's magnetic fields and its auroral currents.
The Birthplace of Planetary Radio Astronomy
Jupiter's natural radio emissions were first discovered near Seneca, Maryland. In 2005, Radio JOVE and the Carnegie Institution Department of Terrestrial Magnetism recognized the 50th anniversary of this discovery and helped publicize this milestone with a variety of events and presentations.
