A30VE THE FLOODS
(By Leon Barrltt.)
AS THE constellation Scorpio moves
up along the southeastern sky
these July nights its striking:
string of stars, the most conspicuous
in that part of the heavens, has an
added Interest because of the planet
Jupiter within its borders. There can
be no mistaking, his Jovian majesty,
the largest planet in our salar system,
measuring 85.00 miles in diameter. Be
low some eight or ten moon disks and
a lltue to the west, is the first magni
that he excites the liveliest interest
even from those who give the heavens
but passing consideration.
No wonder then that Galileo, in 1610,
should have made Jupiter one of the
first objects in the heavens for in
vestigation with his newly invented
telescope, which revealed to his de
light and to the astonishment of the
scientific world, that it had four satel
lites revolving about it These satel

Through the development of the tele
scope and dry plate photography, four
other small satellites have been added
to this group. The first of these, the
'Fifth." was discovered by Prof. E E.
Barnard in 1892. It is the Innermost
being 112.000 miles distaftt from Jupi
ter, and is J0O miles in diameter. Its
penoo. is iz nours. Ios. VI and VII
were discovered, by Perrine, of the Lick
Observatory, in 1904-5. Periods 251 and
260 days r .ipectively.
By means of photography in Febru
ary. 1908. Prof. P. J. Melotte. of the
Greenwich Observatory, discovered the
eighth satellite. The writer has an in
teresting copy of this photograph, and
though enlarged three diameters, the
object appears as a mere needle point
scarcely distinguishable to 'the naked
eye. It is of the 17th magnitude and
is estimated to be not more than 35
miles in diameter. It has a very re
1 rkable orbit , much more distant
irom ics primary tnan any other known
satellite, very eccentric and hlnhlv in
clined, and with a retrograde motion,
or in the opposite direction to that of
all the other satellites of Jupiter they
moving eastward and this little fellow
westward. Its nearest distance from
Jupiter Is 10,000.000 miles ana its great
est distance 20,000.000 mites, and Its
period of revolution is S30 days.
It was for some time doubtful when
first discovered whether it was a satel
lite or a minor planet and its true na
ture was only determined after three
months of careful, observation. The
object Is so faint that It required an
exposure of so minutes to nmnr. it-
